Storyline

A shocking revelation turns a teenage boy's world upside down in this chilling look at the evil that can lurk below even the most wholesome surface. Tyler Burnside is a Boy Scout, a volunteer at his local church, and the dutiful son of an upstanding, community leader dad. Only one thing troubles the quiet Kentucky town he lives in: the unsolved murders-in which ten women were brutally tortured and killed by a psychopath known as Clovehitch-that rocked the community more than a decade ago. When Tyler discovers a cache of disturbing images in his father's possession, he begins to suspect that the man he trusts most in the world may be Clovehitch-and that his deadly rampage may not be over. With unrelenting tension, director Duncan Skiles crafts a picture-perfect vision of the all-American family-and then piece by piece rips it to shreds. Written by Andrew Lauer

You can't program a round combination lock with whatever combination you like, you just have to use what it comes with. So the odds of Tyler guessing the combination to the shed are pretty much zero. See more »

Intelligent thriller
27 November 2018 | by TheAlmightyFingerSee all my reviews

I thought this film was well done. It is a slow-burn thriller with excellent acting, especially that of an almost unrecognizable Dylan McDermott.

There are a few understated creepy scenes that will stick in your memory.
