Eric (Anthony Bewlz) and Reese (Dennis Andres) have put all their money
in an abandoned inn in the middle of nowhere with the intention of
re-opening it as a bed and breakfast - but when they renovate it, they
feel some weird energies, weird enough that they call in a psychic, Chloe
(Lindsay Seim), who can only confirm their feelings, but also feels
strongly drawn to Eric, and vice versa. Running errands, Reese stumbles
across Sheryl (Eileen Dietz), who fills him in about the history of the
inn: It was owned by serial killer Nathan Cross (Rob Archer), who killed
and buried six women there 10 years ago - but there was a seventh who
escaped, reported him to the police, and eventually Nathan was arrested,
convicted to death and executed ... which means Eric and Reese are in
possession of a murder house - that could turn into a goldmine if promoted
right. Reese also finds some old videotapes in the basement, obviously
left by the killer, and when watching them has a weird revelation.
Meanwhile, Eric fetches Chloe from the graveyard where her car broke
down, but things are soon getting weird, and apparently it's down to solar
flares hitting the town that open a gateway to another dimension and
allows the dead back into our world. Back at the inn, it's revealed that
Chloe was actually the girl who has escaped from Nathan back when - and it
seems he's now coming back from the dead to finish what he has started.
Sure, Eric and Reese are hell-bent on saving her, but how can they fight
what they don't even fully understand ...
True, A Wakefield Project has a bit of a slow
beginning, and it does take the suspension of disbelief almost to breaking
point - but what it also has are relatable and interesting characters
embodied by a fine cast, a good sense for mystery ... and a truly exciting
finale that pulls all the stops, is atmospheric as heck, and doesn't pull
away from showing full-on violence in all the right moments while also
hitting all the right notes on the suspense side of things. Good genre fun
