Product Description

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.

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.

'Grindstone Road' has been widely described as 'not that good but not that bad' and I have to say I'm in 100% agreement.

It has plenty going for it; for one the plot is strong and despite being yet another 'couple move house after a recent trauma' offering, it is different and neatly finds it own space amidst the packed sub-genre. The acting is fine and the few twists along the way original enough - the problem is it's all a little 'safe'!

What I mean is the scares are few and far between and when they come they don't really deliver. In addition, we don't get to know quite enough about the characters and what tension there is doesn't quite get there. The first half of the film is a bit plodding and uneventful but thankfully the last 30 minutes or so are strong and relatively rewarding.

'Grindstone Road' feels like it was made for a pre-watershead TV slot, so much so you'd struggle to say it's a horror film at all. I don't want to knock it too much as ultimately I sat through it and it held my attention enough to ride it out - just don't expect a white knuckle horror ride though! Best to think of it like visiting Alton Towers and going on the Tea Cups instead of Nemesis!

If you can pick 'Grindstone Road' up cheaply I would take a look, but please, if you're a hardened horror fan don't expect much in the way of thrills.

Hannah and Graham are still struggling to come to terms with the car accident which robbed them of their son Daniel who now lies in a coma. A year after the accident and with Daniel showing no signs of emerging from his coma they buy an old farmhouse near the hospital and set about renovating it.
Hannah sees and hears strange things in the house but Graham insists that it is just her guilt and grief and that she is imagining things so Hannah sets out to the uncover the truth about the house.
The film started out well but it then seemed to drag on and I found myself getting bored. The ending had a nice twist which is why I rated it three stars as I was only going to give it two stars.
Not a bad film but not great either. The storyline is slow and the acting isn't fantastic but I've seen worse films.
I saw this on tv but I would have been disappointed if I'd bought it.

A couple of good jump scares early on otherwise not really a horror film as such. An enjoyable watch though and Fairuza Balk carries off her role believably. Greg Bryk as her husband not so convincing in my opinion. A good story that isn't great and really overall earns the 3 stars I gave it and no more. I wouldn't watch it again because once you know the ending there is not enough to make it worth a second viewing.

This is not really a horror film, but it is good nevertheless. For once we have a film that has a happy ending, a good ghost story and although it was a bit predictable towards the end, a very satisfying watch. Definitely worth watching, and I have just watched it the second time around, and found I liked it even more. I don't want to give anything away to spoil someone's viewing but it does have a "feel good sensation" about it. A good supernatural story. It's one of the rare viewing occasions when we get a movie like this that contains a good conclusion and doesn't rely on gore.
