Storyline

The firefighter Chris Conley buys an isolated old house in the middle of nowhere with neither telephone nor electricity and moves with his estranged wife Maggie expecting to save their marriage and restart a new life. A few months ago, Maggie was pregnant and lost her baby of eight months when Chris pushed her during an argument. The real estate agent Rob Bradley explains that the house is split in two and Maggie and Chris will need to share the space with the tenants Mr. and Mrs. Anderson for at least one more month when the old couple will leave the house. Chris finds a job in the nearest town and leaves the unstable Maggie alone to unpack and decorate the house. Maggie overhears a telephone and weird noises in the house and soon she meets Mrs. Anderson and learns that Mr. Anderson is an abusive husband like she believes Chris is.

This was anything but scary...
26 November 2013 | by (Denmark) – See all my reviews

From the movie poster / movie cover and the story summary, then I had initially expected something entirely different from this movie compared to what it turned out to be.

That being said, then this movie was a snoozefest. Wow, it just dragged on and on forever with a horribly bad storyline. Nothing scary happened throughout the entire course of the movie, and it is only the last 5 minutes of the movie or so that really are of any importance. I will say that director David Mun did manage to pull off the ending quite nicely. However, the rest of the movie, not so much.

The story is about a couple who lost a child during pregnancy while being stuck in traffic in the city. Some time later, they move to a remote countryside, far, far away from any town. The house is grand and seems almost too good to be true. But the idyllic setting soon turns to horror.

As well-intended as the storyline might have been, then it failed on almost every account to accomplish much of anything. And the most scary parts about the movie was the music score, or the fact how utterly dull and slow-paced this movie was.

It should be said that the acting was actually good enough, but the actors and actresses just had next to nothing script-wise to work with.

If you enjoy horrors and thrillers, then there are far better movies out there to sit down and watch.
