Megan and her friends, Christian, Zoe, Mark and Alicia head to her old family home in Nowell Lake to celebrate the Summer Solstice. The only problem is that Megan is still haunted by the suicide of her twin sister Sofie six months earlier. While shopping at a supply store on the way to the house, Megan befriends Nick who gives her a magazine telling her about communicating with the dead during the Solstice. Whilst in the house, Megan is haunted by what she believes to be the ghost of Sofie which is symbolised by a key chain that Sofie had the night of her death. While investigating the mystery hauntings, she starts to become suspicious of Nick and after finding a photograph of a missing girl named Malin, she starts to unravel an even darker secret that may hold the key to her sisters death. Throughout the film we are given flashbacks of the events leading up to the suicide of Sofie. We are taught that it's not just a girls way of getting out of a tough spot, Sofie is haunted by a curse which she desperately wants to get away from. This ultimately causes her to take a drastic decision that will effect Megan for the months to come.

Now being a straight to DVD movie I didn't expect much, I expected it to be filled with clichés and to be actually, not that scary. I was wrong as this was a film that a lot of the time gave me the creeps. I expected it in some ways to be very in your face with the hauntings from the beginning. It was nothing of the sort as it paced itself well, it didn't seem to want to be a cliché movie where the girl thinks she's going crazy and so does everyone else until they die or something ridiculous like that. It didn't rush it, it didn't treat the viewer like a child with the attention span of a sparrow.

At first I thought this was going to be a standard tween slasher flick. Sadly its not even that good. Because although there are the requisite cast of moderately attractive tweenagers, culled from various US TV shows (and one former X-man!) in improbably neat clothes there actually isn't a slasher in the film. The closest you get is the living legend that is R.Lee Ermey looking a bit glum.

There's the suggestion of horror for the first hour or so. Then some quick mumbo-jumbo about Cajun black magic (those poor Cajuns - always portrayed badly in American movies) and a couple of semi-shocking flashbacks to explain the whole thing. Basically the heroine of the piece is haunted by her dead sister's keyring and then finds out said sister and sister's boyfriend killed some poor girl and kept it a secret. More in the vein of The Grudge then, than a genuine slasher flick, but sadly The Solstice has nothing novel, shocking, or particularly entertaining to spring on its audience.

The cast get some experience of being in a 'big' movie, R.Lee Ermey gets a paycheck, the rest of us get numb behinds. Pass on this one.

3.0 out of 5 stars No real scares, some minor chills 8 Dec 2008
By Trevor Willsmer HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Directed by one half of the one-hit-wonder Blair Witch Project team who have been stuck in straight-to-video Hell ever since, Daniel Myrick's Solstice turns out to be a better than expected remake of Swedish chiller Midsommer without ever being special enough to go out of your way to see. Set in the Louisiana swamps instead of the Maryland woods, rather than an improvised or semi-documentary approach it opts for a more classical style, shot on film in 2.35:1 widescreen, and rather than ambiguity it offers a resolution to its story of a girl who thinks her dead sister may be trying to communicate with her as the summer solstice approaches. Is she trying to tell her why she committed suicide or that she was actually murdered? And just what was she so afraid of in the days leading to her death? Cue shadows seen out of the corner of the eye and objects that keep on turning up in the wrong place, as things take rather too long to escalate. The shortage of suspects doesn't help the lack of tension despite some very obvious red herrings courtesy of R. Lee Ermey's creepy Cajun (for once not recycling his Full Metal Jacket drill instructor but turning in a good performance). But if the guilty party is obvious, the crime and the nature of the haunting do provide a satisfying twist and while there are no real scares there are a few minor chills along the way. Not great, but a not bad time filler if you're not expecting much. More two-and-a-half stars than three.

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent actors, disappointing 'horror' 21 Oct 2008
By Miss K TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:DVD
After watching this film, I went to have a look at the certification and was very suprised to see it was a 15 - I am sure this film could have gotten away with a 12!! Like so many reviewers here, I agree that this film just isn't scary. There's a lot of suspense created through the music but hardly any pay off. The evil entity is so poorly created that it just looks like someone's drawn it in after production and added two bits of light for the eyes - very unsophisticated! I wanted to be scared but you're just left there thinking 'is this for real?!'

On a positive note, the quality of acting is good. I recognized plenty of familiar faces from American teen series' - the girl who plays Peyton in One Tree Hill, Jimmy Olsen from Smallville, the ditzy one from Mean Girls and the lead played the devil's daughter in her own series (can't remember what that was called). It's a decent cast and there are so many straight to DVD films of this sort that have a bunch of unknown actors who are just terrible - atleast with Solstice, the acting is credible!

The plot isn't very original as there are many many similar films with a similar set-up and similar outcome! There's no nudity, bad language or any real violence so I think this would be fine for a slightly younger audience. I don't think the film has been targeted well at all though - it's trying to be a supernatural teen horror but just doesn't quite work.

Worth a rent - just don't expect to be scared!

I really liked this film. I bought it because I was looking at what else the One Tree Hill cast had done.

For a straight to DVD job, its pretty good, tidy storyline not mega jumpy but then again don't think it needs it and a good cast..
