Hannah (Emma Eliza Regan) doesn't have an easy life these days: She has never gotten over the fact that her mum (Elaine Kennedy) killed herself after her dad (Zeb Moore) cheated on her, yet still lives with her dad, and now dad has invited Jake (Shane Robinson), the son of the woman he cheated on his wife with, to live with them for a while. She's also harrassed by sleazy cop Eugene (Conor Marren) and she hates her dead end waitress job, especially because of her choleric boss Rodney (Nigel Mercier). If it wasn't for her two colleagues Alice (Dominique Swain) and Joe (Adam Weafer), who are also her best friends, she would have long lost her marbles. So when one day at an antique shop she's gifted a Yantra board - a special kind of Ouija board - by its owner (Michael Parle), she's all too happy to accept. When she tries it out with Alice and Joe that evening though, the three of them soon have the feeling the thing is more than just a plaything but has some actual powers - they're just unsure which. But the board has told them Eugene would die in a day or so - and then he actually kills himself, slitting his own throat with a broken bottle, right in front of them in the café they work at. And when Rodney later loses his cool over the accident, he suddenly starts banging his head on the café's counter until he's dead. Also, Jake eventually kills himself in a rather freakish manner - and eventually our trio learn the story of the board, that it is possessed by Horace Granger (Ketan Anand), who more than hundred years ago killed someone to help a friend (Jan Graveson), but was rejected by that friend. After that he lived in self-chosen solitude and studied the black arts - and might now be possessing the Yantra board trying to make friends by killing their enemies. Now while this knowledge might be invaluable, it says little of how to get rid of the thing before everybody around Hannah dies horrible deaths ...


Now while the premise of this movie might sound rather far-fetched even by horror standards, it's actually written and structured solidly enough to bring the story across rather hitchlessly. And of course, a stylish and athmospheric directorial effort, one that doesn't shy away from occasional outbursts of violence, helps to keep the viewer engaged, as does a strong ensemble cast.

A pretty cool piece of genre entertainment, actually.
