Storyline

Employed as a night-nurse for the ailing Mr. Cunningham, young carer, Emily, arrives at an isolated house in the English countryside for her first shift, expecting an uneventful evening ahead. After stepping inside the house, and left alone with her silent new patient, Emily is unable to shake a growing sense of dread. As the night draws on, unease blossoms into terror as signs of a supernatural presence grow increasingly harder to ignore. Desperate to escape the premises, yet unwilling to leave the old man behind, Emily is forced to confront the dark secrets which lie buried in the house - secrets that drive her towards an appalling revelation. A disturbingly clever, dark psychological horror Written by Nevermore

Lazy, just...lazy

This movie was really disappointing. The trailer has more watchability than the movie itself. Despite the absolute boring and predictable moments of the movie, the twist at the end was very poor and predictable. It really felt like something someone wrote because they wanted to see if they cauldron make a scary story. There are tidbits of story lingering throughout but the "climax" of the story is sloppy at best. Perhaps someone just wanted to make a movie with this twist, but didn't know how to get there, and it shows. Then there is little payoff for the hour you spend trying to get there only to to get a couple minutes of wrap up. There is so much left hanging that I found this movie to be incredibly disappointing. It had what could have been a good foundation, but was left floundering at the end.
