It's a slow burning psychological horror mainly but is one of the creepiest horrors I've seen for years, and for those who know me know that I don't say something like that lightly.
From brothers Aaron and Austin Keeling comes the tale of Jennifer (Emily Goss) who reluctantly moves back into an old haunted house which she grew up in in Kansas.
She has an unwanted pregnancy and now has to rely on her unbearing mother while the supernatural forces spiral in on her and her unborn child.
Although a great slow burn, it has enough to keep the viewer interested unlike Paranormal Activity. It's not just a person claiming to see something but is actually a person experiencing different things happening such as doors slamming and opening, furniture moving on its own and ghostly shadows etc.
The tension is sky high and the atmosphere is perfect and somewhat beautiful for a movie like this.
It reminds me of a mix between Lovely Molly, Paranormal Activity, and Rosemary's Baby.
It does still have its flaws though of course unfortunately.
The dialogue isn't the best despite great acting from all parties, well, they do their best with what they've been given.
Sometimes it seems that everybody has forgotten that Jennifer is pregnant, including Jennifer herself. It also shows that a lot of the time that the characters around Jennifer just simply don't care about her and her descent into madness when she's witnessing these supernatural anomalies thanks to some not fully explored backstory.
It also has many cliches that you see in a lot of supernatural horrors, but luckily it doesn't take away from what story we have.
It delivers some silly jumpscares and some truly eerie ones that stick in your head a while after watching the film and I truly believe that if you're a horror fan into slow burners with an alright amount of drama, you'll have fun watching it. If however you like a full on gore fest or more speedy films, you'll soon get bored and want to turn it off.
In all I have to give the film:
If it delved into the drama a bit more and made sure it gave you concrete answers, it would have been given a higher score but don't let that put you off as I believe it's definitely worth a watch and experience.
The film is released February 1st and you can order by clicking here.
