review by
Mike Haberfelner

When Patrick Connor (William Haze) accepts the job to try and find the remains of a certain boy on the premises of a correctional facitlity for young boys, he figures it might be a bit like searching for a needle in a haystack for him and his wife Karen (Alice Rietveld), like him a seasoned exhumer, it sounds like the proverbial search for the needle in a haystack, as finding the resting place of one body on 60 acres of land without any assistants is obviously quite a task - but he figures it might be the best for his daughter Emma (Sacah Sculco), who's only slowly taken off medications after a strong depressive phase including suicidal tendencies - after all, the premises might offer all the quiet Emma might need ... or so Patrick thinks at least, as soon Emma starts having nightmares first, then she thinks she sees things. Eventually she starts to wake up at places she has no idea how she got there, and while it's first believed to be a result of sleepwalking, it soon turns out the places she wakes up at seem to be the key points on the island where atrocities between personnel and inmates on the islands seem to have happened, and her phases even lead her parents to places where apparent victims of the facility's staff might have been buried (some even alive). But Emma's behaviour eventually grows from disturbing to threatening ...

 

Exhume is a genuinely creepy movie, basically because it gets the genre right (which is much rarer as one might think, ironically): It doesn't waste its time with explanations for stuff that needs to remain unexplained to be creepy, it doesn't make its backstories too elaborate to rob them of their mystery, and it relies on atmosphere (in conjunction with its rather great locations) and strong performances rather than pure and mindless spectacle. And that all makes this one definitely worth a look (or two).
