David (Ford Austin) is still recovering from his divorce, which of course weighs him down, but otherwise his life isn't half bad, as he's got his daughter Jessica (Rachel Alig) for moral support, he has just moved into a beautiful new home, and he's up for promotion that comes in tandem with quite a pay raise. And then, buried in the backyard of his new home he finds a box, containing a corpse (Tom Fitzpatrick) and three million Dollars in cash. Now of course, the very right thing to do would be to call the authorities - but then again, he didn't do anything wrong, he hasn't seen the dead man ever before let alone has he killed him, and the dead man sure enough can't make use of his money anymore, so why not take the money. But having quite a fortune in his house makes him a tad nervous, and especially at night he thinks he hears things - even if there's nobody who could know about the fortune he keeps under his roof. Also time and again, he thinks he sees the corpse walking around, which he knows doesn't make sense but freaks him out still. Repeatedly, David just throws the money back into the box and buries everything again to just forget about it - but the lure of 3 million in cash is just too big for him. But the whole affair makes him become more and more erratic, to the point where it seriously affects his work, to the point where he's fired - but that's only the beginning of his downward spiral ...

 

A very nice genre movie, as it doesn't only follow the lines of a horror/thriller flick but laces things with bitter irony and making a play on human greed - and thanks to a clever script that doesn't waste time explaining things away this works very well for the film without being too on-your-nose, while direction-wise the film plays with genre tropes and keeps things tense throughout, while Ford Austin gives a relatable central performance that remains pretty much grounded until the character goes totally off the rocker. And all that makes for a pretty unusual piece of horror.
