After Cecile (Deborah Twiss) tragically loses her unborn child, she quits her job, and she, her husband Jonathan (Eric Roberts), and their kids Ariel (Sydney McCann) and Morgan  (Matthew MacCann) decide to move to the country ... and find a home almost too quickly.

Alice (Cathy Moriarty) has lived in this old big country residence for way too long with her bed-ridden mother Sophia (Pat Patterson), and not only can't she afford the maintenance bills anymore, the house also harbours some bad memories, bad memories that have to do with the fact that the relationship between Alice and her mother has become toxic. So when Cecile and Jonathan's car breaks down on their way to doing some house-hunting and they stop by her place to call a tow truck, Sophia is quick to offer them her house for rent ... and since the kids quickly fall in love with the place (especially after Ariel finds a doll on the premises she won't be without anymore), Cecile and Jonathan quickly accept the offer and are quick to move in.

Ariel is starting to have nightmares soon after the move, and they seem to become more extreme night after night, and all are about children being chained and tortured - but at first, her parents think it might just be the effects of the move ... and since when they offer to move elsewhere she refuses, they're ok with that. Things get out of hand when Cecile and Morgan start to see the kids from Ariel's nightmare, too, and not in their dreams but rather as apparitions. And the incidents surrounding those apparitions grow more and more frequent, too, and more and more severe ... so eventually they just have to find out what has happened in the house, what it has to do with the toxic relationship of Alice and her mother, and how a certain priest (James McCaffrey) fits into all of this - before it might be too late ...

 

A Cry from Within is a haunted house story that's old-fashioned in the best possible way: It takes its time to build up its story, relies on atmosphere and suspense rather than spectacle and effects to bring its story across, and is carried by a subtle directorial effort and a great ensemble cast. Sure, there are many haunted house flicks in today's movie world that are louder, more gruesome, more in-your-face than this one, but this one proves the virtues of good storytelling and fine craftmanship, which makes it a rather charming piece of horror. Totally worth a look!
