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.

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 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.

I love a slow burner. I love Fairuza Balk. This film was good on both of those counts till the end, when it got a bit silly and I was disappointed. Read morePublished 17 months ago by Mrs B
I really enjoyed this film; mainly due to the lead actress' ability to build realistic tension and suspense as she slowly descends almost into madness, but not quite, as she... Read morePublished 18 months ago by A
