A man (Shawn Michael Clankie) lives in a house in the woods with his
baby son, baby monitor always in reach, just in case. The mother has died
of something or other, which means he puts all the more efforts into being
a perfect father. The woods should be a peaceful enough place to bring up
a baby, too ... if it wasn't for the fact that a girl has disappeared in
the area, and our man might be more involved than it first seems, having
seen the girl killed and caught the masked killer red-handed - but care
for his son ultimately won the upper hand over trying to face the killer.
A few days later though, a stranger (Péter Inoka), apparently the father
of the disappeared girl, arrives asking for our man's help - which he
grants. But things are not always as they seem ...
fascinating piece of horror cinema that refuses to tell the story in a
straight-forward way, that leaves key events out on purpose, and that
blurs the line between (the film's) reality and imagination ... all to an
effect that really drags one into the on-screen goings-on, that creeps one
out gradually rather than going from scare to scare, and that keeps one
Really really nice one!
