review by
Mike Haberfelner

After John's (Marc Slanger) wife Samantha (Jordan Lewis) has suffered a miscarriage, something they're both pretty traumatized from, he asks his boss (Anthony J. Anastasio) to be relocated from NYC to the countryside for some peace and quiet - and is given an assignment in an Appalachian former coal town to help get the building of a casino on the way ... which also includes disowning some of the locals for the sake of "progress" - in a perfectly legal way of course, but still the locals are less than pleased. So eventually, John and Samantha's home in the village is broken into and Samantha's journal with all her most personal thoughts is stolen ... and soon everybody in town seems to know its content. What's shocking though is that the Sheriff (James Warnier) shows little interest in helping them. Eventually there's another break-in, and Satanic symbols are painted onto the basement walls as a sort of warning. John soon doesn't know where to turn anymore as his psychiatrist (Mark Baker) as well as the local priest (Mark Ashby) seem to poorly disguise threats as benign advice ... and then Samantha's gone all of a sudden, and what John finds out trying to track her down is not exactly encouraging ...

Ed Wood veteran Conrad Brooks plays one of the locals who have to be relocated.


A pretty cool horror thriller that really understands how to build up tension and suspense while keeping the audience guessing until the end, and a film that knows when it's better to only hint at things rather than to drag them out into the light and explain everything away, boring the audience to death in the process. And while the film also stays away from spectacle as such, it still uses powerful, atmospheric imagery to bring its point across. And add to that some really compact performances, and a great backdrop to tell its story in, and you've got yourself a pretty cool movie!
