Storyline

Upon the news from her police sergeant paternal uncle Rupert Woodhouse of her father Joe Woodhouse, a former prison guard, being on his deathbed, Samantha Woodhouse, a police detective herself, returns to her small hometown of Hellmington to be by her father's side, despite they having been estranged for years. Gasping for his last breaths, Joe blurts out the name Katie Owens just before he dies. Katie was the daughter of Vic Owens, a prison guard colleague of Joe's, and a classmate of Sam's who went missing shortly after their high school prom almost twenty years ago. Vic, too, disappeared mysteriously before Katie. Katie's disappearance was never solved, although her boyfriend at the time, Brad Kovacs, was always suspected of having something to do with it. Brad has always asserted that Katie went missing after receiving an invitation to go to an occultist meeting, the occult which she was researching at the time and in which she had always believed. Because of Joe's dying words, ... Written by Huggo

Trivia

All of the brands in the film were created by directors Alex Lee Williams and Justin Hewitt-Drakulic. The cigarettes that everyone smokes, Catarina Lights, were named after the director of photography, Michael Caterina. When the labels were made, the designer misspelled Caterina as "Catarina", a common mistake with his name. The filmmakers asked the designer not to change the mistake to further annoy their friend. Lights was purposely misspelled from lites because of his profession. See more »

Wait, did they just forget to do an ending??
16 August 2020 | by beckett-69658See all my reviews

This film had the makings of something really interesting. The lead develops from stone cold bitch to something more interesting (although a longer run time may have made that process a little more organic), Michael Ironside is solid as ever and a whole host of weird and wonderful characters get introduced but never fully explained.

The plot, though rather conventional, has enough to sustain momentum beyond the 80 odd minutes of the film so why the crunch on runtime?

Without giving too much away, it's worth a watch and would easily be a 7+/10 if the filmmakers had just given it time to breath!!
