Storyline

Victor Robinson moves into a new country home with his family. Their son Jesse, finds an old Edison invention in the basement. When they turn on the machine, they start hearing children's voices laughing and playing at night. Their mute autistic daughter, Meaghan, becomes more animated; singing and painting figures inside of a circle on the walls. Other strange events start to take place around the house, such as two strange figures burned into the grass and even an attempted break in. After doing some research, Victor discovers that two children were murdered years ago in the town, and their bodies were never found. After visiting the man who confessed to the crime, he is convinced the spirits of those children are trying to warn him that their real killer is still loose.

Niightworld: Lost Souls
17 November 2017 | by a_baronSee all my reviews

The Robinson family - him her, and not quite 2.4 children - move to a big house in a rural area for a specific purpose. Their daughter is autistic, and they want her to attend a special school. Eight years previously a boy and a girl had been murdered in either a single transaction or close to it. A local man had been convicted of the crime on his own confession. He had also confessed to many more murders.

This is not quite an open and shut case because with the help of Thomas Edison no less, the victims appear to be communicating with the daughter. Appear to be? There is some quite obvious haunting early on which is witnessed by more than one person, so the viewer is left in no doubt that it is for real. Unfortunately, apart from a couple of fairly obvious red herrings, that is as good as this one gets.
