Inspired by a 1970s urban legend, this atmospheric nerve-shredder follows two scientists (Jeffrey Thomas & Jed Brophy) and a young psychic (Laura Petersen) as they travel to the countryside to investigate mysterious goings on at a Fiordland farmhouse that a terrified family had fled. Skepticism quickly turns to terror, as the researchers' presence unsettles a seriously angry demonic presence possessing the home. Excellent production values, photography and sound design that will give your sub-bass a real workout. Recommended within its genre.
