While actress Heather (Carolyn Baeumler) is out filming, her husband Don (Victor Verhaeghe) and their daughter Iris (Acadia Bost) take a vacation somewhere in the middle of nowhere, Maine, to get away from it all and spend some father-daughter quality time all at the same time. Now Don has recently been laid off, so being a fulltime father is new to him, and thus he leaves Iris to herself most of the time, with the result that she strikes a great friendship with the owners of the local antiques store (Tammy Faye Starlite, Hal Robinson), and she becomes rather obsessed with a diary from decades ago depicting an ultimately botched up wedding, a diary that ties in to a local urban legend/ghost story. And that ghost story might have something to do with the house she and dad are spending their vacation at. When Heather arrives at the vacation home after her shoot, she's quite disturbed by the state her daughter's in, and especially her obsession with weddings, also mirrored in the sheer endless number of wedding dresses she has hidden all over the house, that she turns down an offer for some additional shooting days just to be there for girl. Thing is, Iris behaves more and more hostile towards her, and it's not long before her behaviour turns self-destructive ...


A pretty unusual horror movie as it's extremely economic in its use of scare tactics, and completely lacking in terms of spectacle - and that's what makes it so interesting, as it relies on the strength of its story, and especially the parts of the story that aren't clearly laid out, and a well thought-through structure keeps the viewer guessing to the end. And an atmospheric directorial effort keeps a fitting feel of unease up throughout while a solid little ensemble cast keeps things grounded and thus relatable, to make this into a pretty cool piece of slowburn horror.
