Youngsters Charlie (Ranger Lerway) and Vincent (Jonas Lerway), the twins from the local scarehouse, are best friends with Winnie (Maddy-Lea Hendrix), a girl their age. And while Vincent's clearly the alpha male of the two twins, Winnie likes Charlie more - so much so that they start to make out in a hearse on the scarehouse premises - when suddenly, Winnie has an allergic shock, and as Charlie doesn't know what to do, Winnie dies. Vincent promises to take care of the body, but has Charlie swear to secrecy - and thus, the girl's disappearance remains a mystery, until ...

10 years later, Winnie's sister wannabe actress Laura (Lorelei Linklater), who has just lost her best friend in a freak car accident, returns to her hometown, where it's almost inevitable that she runs into Charlie and Vincent (now both played by Riley Cusick), who by now actually run the scarehouse between themselves - and not without friction. Laura feels drawn to them, and only in part because she wants to find out what has happened to her sister, and two brothers feel drawn to her as well - and just like her sister, Laura prefers the humble and klutzy but nice Charlie over the more flamboyant but also irritable Vincent. Thing is, Charlie's disturbingly spinning out of control of late, which goes from firing all the scarehouse personnel to beating up the town bully with a crowbar to actually killing someone. And he has special plans for Laura, too ...

 

What's so interesting about this movie is that while it has the perfect look of a horror movie, features plenty of suspense scenes, and employs several genre mainstays, it actually plays much more like a psycho-drama and thus puts its emphasis not so much on scare tactics and shock value but on character arcs and backstory. And thanks to a clever script that despite its tragic story never fails to entertain, and on-point performances by all involved, this approach actually works like a charm, making this a very watchable horror/drama hybrid.
