However, only after meeting a charming gravedigger named J.P. (Dylan Kellogg) does she begin to feel at ease. He navigates her through the twists and turns of the murky waters of her family's past, eventually uncovering shocking revelations. Written by House of Rose LLC Copyright 2018

Did You Know?


In the first week of June 2016, the Seine River in Paris and many other water outlets throughout France, burst their banks, and several reports claimed it to be the worst flooding in a century. This almost caused the filmmakers to push back the filming dates, but luckily the waters receded just prior to the start of principal photography. See more »


Abel Baddon: Ms. Lucy, you will think about it, yes?
Lucy Bellerose: Sorry, I don't plan on dying any time soon.
Abel Baddon: No one ever does.

Save Yourself the Pain
25 July 2018 | by larrys3See all my reviews

Unfortunately, I found very little to like in this horror flick. With terribly flat dialogue and acting, plus a storyline that seems to have been cobbled together from so many other horror films, it's even below B-movie quality, in my opinion.

Sam Valentine portrays the beautiful Lucy a flighty but intrepid young American woman who has traveled to France for the funeral of her great-uncle the Count Rose du Sang, at the creepy Castle Borley. Will she succumb to the devil-worshipping clan that resides there or will she break free of her family tradition that may have destined her to join them?

Since the ending was so convoluted, to me at least, I have no idea what actually happened. Maybe, you'll be able to figure it out.

I would say save yourself the pain and pass on this mess of a movie.
