Dinah (Elena Caruso) and Jake's (Chris Conner) marriage has seen better days for sure, but they want to save their relationship, also for their kids Steven (Noah Headley) and Michaela's (Accalia Quintana) sake - so they decide to quit the city for the summer and move deep into Amish country where there's no cellphone reception, no internet, no nothing. Dinah and Jake intend this to be a bonding experience for the whole family, but the grown ups soon enough have their own agendas to deal with, while the kids, left on their own and without their usual means of entertainment, start to exploring the region unsupervised, and soon come across all sorts of eccentric characters, some just Amish people from the neighbourhood, but some might actually be spectres from the afterworld. Of course, Dinah and Jake are concerned, but not enough to put the welfare of their children above their own petty problems.

... and concerned they should be, as apparently the region is haunted - and that's not so much a myth among the Amish but based on the numerous disappearances of people in the area, as well as a bona fide massacre among an Amish family. Abraham (Greg Wood), the patriarch, blames it all on an unnamable creature living in the woods, but is too afraid to do anything about it. In the meantime, summer solstice is approaching, apparently an event that requests human sacrifice, and Steven and Michaela start to behave weirder and weirder, while Jake starts having violent outbursts. And now it's up to Dinah to save the day - but she's hardly a match for what she's up against ...

 

A nice horror thriller that creates a mystery by telling its story on two temporal levels while putting atmosphere over spectacle (until the finale at least) and making perfect use of its very moody locations. The result is not a movie of jump scares but one that manages to gradually creep out the audience. And a strong ensemble cast (including the two kids) really help bringing things across in a very unsettling manner.
