review by
Mike Haberfelner

Summer (Paige Smith), Wyatt (Cullen Ries) and Jamie (Phil Culton) have all freshly graduated from college and come for a visit to their high school buddy Landon (Will Bryant) - also Summer's boyfriend, who has never joined them in college, as he hasn't been able to leave the house for the last four years due to some uncpecified shock. Thing is, while nobody doubts he has been traumatized, his excuses for not even trying to leave the house grow increasingly thin, and especially Summer grows increasingly impatient - sure, she loves him, but she also wants to see the world and has been offered a job in another town hundreds of miles away ... so even if she doesn't want to lose Landon, he's holding her back, and the fact that he totally evades her questions every time she brings up the matter don't do anything to calm her down. Problem though is, of late, Landon seems to be getting worse, he starts to see things that really don't make sense like dirt in his hallway, and ultimately thinks an ex (Stefani Cronley) who has gone missing years ago has come back to warn him - and she might or might not be dead ...

 

A very interesting film that takes a horror mainstay but turns it on its head and tells it as a character study. And while the movie might be relatively low on suspense and jump scares for it's horror premise, it's really nicely told, compelling, and carried by likeable and relatable characters played by a very solid ensemble cast. And a very restrained direction also helps to keep the film going in a slow-burn way.
