Storyline

Featuring shades of Edgar Allen Poe's ["A Tell-tale Heart" and] "The Black Cat", 1922, with a Bonny and Clyde sub-plot, based on the Stephen King novella of the same name, centers on simple but proud farmer, Wilfred James, who, with his young son, murders his wife to gain ownership of her inherited land. Shortly after, however, strange and supernatural occurrences begin to plague both James and his farm. Is it just simple bad luck, or is it the work of something much more sinister? Written by Jake Logsdon

Trivia

Thomas Jane was in The Mist (2007) where he painted a picture of Roland the Gunslinger from Stephen King's The Dark Tower series. This movie was released the same year as The Mist (2017) and The Dark Tower (2017). See more »

Goofs

The murder at the beginning takes place in 1922 and yet the sheriff who comes to the farm to investigate does so in what appears to be a very nice 1930 Model A pickup. The Model A wouldn't even be built until 1927. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Wilfred James: [writing] To whom it may concern. My name is Wilfred Leland James, and this is my confession. The issue that led to my crime and damnation was 100 acres of good land in Hemingford Home, Nebraska, willed to my wife, Arlette Christina Winters James, following the death of her father. It was much my intention to add her 100 to our 80-acre freehold farm, as it was to someday pass it all on to my boy, Henry Freeman James, and to his thereafter.

I got bored
22 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

This one had so much potential but ultimately failed to deliver as an adequate piece of entertainment or enjoyment. It starts off excellently, the story is gripping the scenes and cinematography excellent, the cast is good and there is a great feel of authenticity about the period.

Initially the plot is a little far fetched and only by giving some considerable leeway is it acceptable. The story however, degenerates slowly and sadly after 20 mins it gathers momentum and continues in a downward slide till its conclusion.

I wasn't certain if this was a thriller a murder mystery or horror or something else. I think its a bit of all three but the blend is bad and the delivery is a little lacking. I'm not even sure where this one went wrong but my attention started to wane about 30 minutes in, and I was bored and restless 10 minutes later. I think one of the problems I had with it is that nothing much happens. Or at least in a way meaningful enough to keep me interested. By the time it had all panned out and I made my way out, all I could think of was 'meh' and wished I'd taken up the offer to play Nerf with my nephews instead.

I didn't like it, but I've given it 5 because I do think it deserves some credit for the good work done here. However, it still a boring piece and ultimately had little to offer as an enjoyable movie. Even though I completely appreciate there were great aspects to the production, the end product as an cinema experience was lacklustre and hollow.

I can't recommend it .
