“You are so sweet to me.” [Nate]
on 24 February 2016
In this 2011 supernatural suspense [aka: After Dark], Emily (Leisha Hailey) and Nate Weaver (Gale Harold) move to the countryside to Nate's empty family home after Emily suffers an horrific miscarriage, but the charming house has a dark past and soon reveals some spooky coincidences. Will Emily discover the secrets it holds before it is too late, or is she simply imagining it all?
There is a constant feeling that something is lurking under the surface which helps provide suspense but the first half spends too much time building momentum for the climactic finale and the scares and tension are spaced too far apart to keep it fast paced [lose a *]. Despite feeling I had seen this film before, I concluded it was essentially an amalgam of other films with similar plot lines, yet it still entertained.
The single disc opens to 3 trailers before going to main menu offering play, scene selection and special features [fertile ground trailer, main event trailer. And don’t watch it till after you’ve seen the film].
With one instance of topless nudity, a full frontal ‘old’ photo, a mild sex scene, sporadic violence [mostly off shot for the first half] but plenty of intense moments, make this an 18. An excellent late night Tv movie but will not please gore fans but the ending helps pull this back to a ****.
