Five years ago, James Parrish (Geoff Tate) slaughtered his wife and
sons, with no apparent motive, and not having shown any signs of mental
instability before. Then he disappeared, apparently from the face of the
Now: Cole (Tony Guida) runs a home improvement company, and to go
with the times, he decides to promote what he's doing in the shape of a
reality TV show. For the first episode he has chosen a completely run-down
New England seaside building, and decided to refurbish it as a

Burningmoore Deaths is one of the few films that get it right, using
the genre's characteristics and limitations to create suspense the
old-fashioned way via clever editing between the different cameras rather

cause for some of the more amusing aspects of the movie. And the finale's
quite simply a real chiller!
