The performances are very good overall, especially Josh Stewart, and the film even boasts an appearance from Christopher Lloyd – as well as the most random cameo of the year from Tommy Wiseau (yes, that really weird guy responsible for ‘The Room’). There’s nothing about the film that I can single out as being particularly bad since the camerawork is good, the setting is interesting and has a really nice aesthetic to it, as well as having an atmospheric soundtrack that sometimes reminded me of the music from ‘It Follows’. It perhaps wasn’t as scary I would have liked, but the good characters and drama make this seem less important.
This is a very interesting film as there’s something different about it that sets it apart from other recent supernatural horror films. The horror isn’t necessarily the primary focus, but rather the psychological unravelling of the characters is. It’s difficult to pinpoint why exactly, but it does feel like a unique story while also being simplistic. It’s good to see a horror film that tries a different way to scare and isn’t so concerned with making its audience jump.
