Product Description

Young Daniel Sloan has been in an extended coma following a terrible car accident. His mother Hannah (Fairuza Balk) was driving at the time and is now suffering from massive guilt and extreme depression. In trying to put their recent tragedy behind them, Hannah and her husband Graham (Greg Bryk) buy a old farmhouse intend on renovating it but immediately Hannah begins to witness strange and mysterious phenomenon. Concerned with his wifes supernatural visions and her increasing dependence on anti depressant drugs, Graham turns to Ted and Linda, the older couple next door for support. Their new neighbours appear friendly and eager to help but sinister motives lie behind their outwardly pleasant demeanour as the past comes back to haunt everyone.

2.0 out of 5 stars possibilities unfulfilled 27 Jan 2011
Format:DVD
I had such high hopes for this movie when it first started. It is intelligently written, not too much was being given away, one was ceremoniously offered the backwater (mildly) creepy old house, then there were the overly friendly, (obviously weird) old couple next door and PRESTO! the stage is set. Mum and dad have moved back to mums childhood town after a terrible car accident that has left their 11 year old son in a year long coma. Mum (Fairuza Balk) is racked with guilt, dad (Some Bloke)is the cool and calm psychiatrist. Convinced that his wife's having a mental and nervous breakdown, when she reports seeing 'things' and hearing things. This hearing and seeing things all started when mum discovers that many years ago a young boy with the same name and of the same age as her own son mysteriously disappeared. From here she goes on a mission to discover and uncover the truth behind the boys disappearance which she does with surprisingly little hindrance (except from her "You're just stressed and traumatised" rationalising husband). From now on this had all the potential it could possibly have wished for to be a genuinely creepy, 'scrape your nerves along edges of steel' and 'make you jump out of your seat' with shadow play, noises and general good old fashioned haunted house effects. Unfortunately it all turns out to be quite pedestrian and even verges on a feel good thriller, rather than taking full advantage of what is actually a genuinely decent plot with a genuinely decent cast, and really all in all it lets itself down, and the the viewer who was hoping for some genuine icy chills and make you go "Ahh" moments. its actually rather difficult to even put this film down as a chiller/thriller/horror, as it does not satisfy any of the criteria for any of them, all in all a very odd mix of a thriller with a feel good ending.

1.0 out of 5 stars grindstone road-dvd 15 Mar 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Even if i had been told with no-one liking this,i would have given it a go-as i did.BIG MISTAKE!How many more times can this theme be exploited-you know;old house,youngish couple, 'dont buy it something bad happened there-oh!you bought it anyway'film.then it drags on and on.would you or i have continued to stay there-let alone bought it-probably not,i reckon.But then this entertainment would not have been made-shame.utter utter nonsense.there must be a really good scary movie out there waiting for me surely.but not vampire movies please-they are worse than this.

3.0 out of 5 stars Lifeless Thriller 10 Oct 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The story of this film couple buy old farmhouse to try and put tragic loss behind them has the outline of a horror film but strangely despite supernatural occurrences it never really amounts to one. It remains rather anaemic throughout the only vitality coming from the presence of Fairuza Balk a formidable actress who looks great in this movie - I'll give it 3.
