Helena Bonham Carter,
I went into this completely blind and I loved it! First, it is low budget, so there's the typical issues with that. And yes, there are some plot holes, but the story centers on a mystery so it's forgivable that not every single thing is explained.
A couple moves to a rural farm. The photographer husband begins capturing ghostly figures in his pictures. And as the wife cleans out the house she discovers evidence of a pagan cult. The elderly neighbor lady mysteriously disappeared then reappeared decades before, but was it actually HER that came back? Is the field behind their house a spiritual vortex? Or a wormhole in space-time? Was the cult worshipping the powers of the field? Or does the cult exist in a parallel universe?
I would classify this film as sci-fi much more than horror or thriller. It's not perfect, but it's very interesting. And I'm this modern film age of reboots, remakes, and tired tropes it was really refreshing to find an actual new, unique idea for a plot.
