review by
Mike Haberfelner

Ever since the death of her mother (Julie T. Wallace), Laura (Jasmyn Banks) hasn't felt all that easy in mum's mansion she has inherited. And it's not just the grief regarding mother's death, fact is that she suffered from some sort of schizophrenia the last years of her life that effectively made her an evil person.

Laura's state of mind has taken a turn for the worse of late, so much so that her husband Jake (Judson Vaughan) starts to worry - but it's her friend Petra (Petra Bryant) who suggests to consult a spiritualist (Caroline Burns Cooke). Everybody doubts same spiritualist of course, especially Jake - but she soon turns out to be the real deal ... and turns everything Laura believed to know about her mother and father (Ian Reddington) on its head - to rather lethal results ...

 

Ok, so the beginning of this movie is a bit confusing as it presents scenes (in the same take) that happen years apart and might only be associations rather than the hard truth - but it's the good kind of confusing that keeps one guessing. But then the movie seems to take a turn where everything's pretty much colour-by-numbers, well-made (especially the many long takes), well-acted but predictable - only to then turn everything around and defy audience expectations by not giving us a cookie-cutter narrative but a highly original (and suitably tense) finale instead.

So in other words, I really liked the film, exactly because it was not was it made itself appear to be.

Definitely recommended!
