Somewhere in rural and sowy USA: Ivy (Toby Poser) is a tarot card reader who has once had "the gift" but long lost it, but still uses her knowledge to trick her regulars out of a bit of money, also to raise her 14 year old daughter Echo (Zelda Adams) - and then one day, she's gone, which leaves Ivy in pieces. She soon prints out missing-posters and hands them out and hangs them up everywhere, but to little avail.

Recluse Kurt (John Adams) has only recently moved into the neighbourhood and is presently renovating a dilapitated house - when one night, driving a bit on the tipsy side, he runs over a girl, Echo. He's of course shocked as can be, but instead of calling emergency, he, perceiving her dead, takes her home in order to get rid of her corpse. But she comes to, and Kurt is so shocked that he kills her for real, then buries her body. Soon, he receives a visit from Ivy, who lives only a few housed down the road, and who inquires about her daughter, but he claims he has never even seen her. He also receives a ghostly visit from Echo, and when he returns to her burial site, he finds her partly dug up, so he buries her deeper - but ghostly Echo keeps coming, so soon he digs up her body, cuts it up and by the by gets rid of the parts. Echo keeps coming back still, and eventually, Kurt tries to make friends with Ivy, in an attempt to get rid of Echo's visitations.

Ivy is desparate. By now she's sure that something terrible has happened to Echo, but can't have closure without the first clue, and the police are no help here, so she consults her old colleague and former student, Dell (Shawn Wilson), whose spiritial powers are still intact, and he lets her into the "Seven Circles", a sort of spiritual dimension where she might be able to find Echo and thus find out what has happened to her, but the (spiritual) price to pay is very high - and soon she gets from one weird and creepy situation into the next, all the time edging closer to her daughter's killer, but ever more on the verge of losing her own mind ...


In a way, this is a family movie as in real life Toby Poser and John Adams are married and Zelda is their real life daughter, and between the three of them they filled most of the postions that went into making this movie - but it's probably the creepiest family movie ever made, as this is a movie that really understands to create and play with atmosphere, and how to use its slowburn approach to full effect. And also, the moody locations fit the story rather perfectly, while the story's frequent shift of perspective keeps things interesting and the viewers at the edges of their seats throughout, making for a really good piece of horror entertainment.
