A newly reunited young couple's drive through the Pacific Northwest turns into a nightmare as they are forced to face nature, unsavory locals, and a monstrous creature, known to the Native Americans as Oh-Mah.
Andrew Joseph Montgomery,
In the fall of 1960, Father Thomas Riley and Father John Thornton were sent by the Vatican to investigate a miraculous event in an Irish home for 'fallen women', only to uncover something much more horrific.
When Simon brings his twelve year-old son, Finn, to rural Vermont to help flip an old farmhouse, they encounter the malicious spirit of Lydia, a previous owner. And now with every repair they make - she's getting stronger.
A competantly done film, just flawed in execution and suspense.
Cinematography is well done
Acting is exceptional at moments
Practical effects were decent
The soundtrack of the film is a bit overbearing and often leads to more of a sensation of melodrama rather than suspense
The feeling of dread and suspense doesn't really kick in until the later half of the film
The film relies on multiple occurrences of look in direction, nothing there, look away, look back, somethings there. This happens to end up flawed since suspense is not built up enough for these moments to pay off
Overall, a good watch but I wouldn't suggest paying a full price of admission to a theater. The film feels more at home on a movie streaming service.
