Originally, Ben (Ryan Allen), a washed-up boxer, came to his recently deceased father's house only to find dad's safe and clear out the money, which is legally Ben's anyway. However, he runs into neighbours Ted (Todd Campbell) and Lisa (Dana Fradkin), who try their hardest to invite Ben over to theirs for drinks, despite Ben being a recovering alcoholic, and who get mad when he refuses, and it becomes clear that this is a more difficult job than he might have thought. Later local handiman Mason (Jason Martorino) shows up and insists on putting a scarecrow in the garden since Ben's father has paid him to do so, and despite Ben's protestations. And then Ben stumbles upon Amy (Adrienne Kress), a friend of his father's who apparently has been hiding out in the house, and she claims since Ben's dad's death the locals have all gone crazy. And soon enough her claims are confirmed when Mason, Ted and Lisa all try to lure Ben out of the house and attack him - but weirdly enough are unable to actually enter the house. Eventually, Ben and Amy find Ben's dad's safe, and in it plenty of information to what's really going on in town: Apparently, Mason is the leader of a cannibal cult, and Mason believes that eating Ben, whose father and grandfather have both been priests, will give him unlimited power. But he and his minions can't enter Ben's father's home as the house has been built on the foundation of a burnt down church and thus on consecrated ground. Thing is, while they can't come in that also means that Ben and Amy are trapped inside - and Mason and company have means of luring them out, like having taken Ben's best friend (Elias Zarou) hostage ...


Nice horror thriller of the evil cult variety, and one that works particularly well as it doesn't give its game away too soon, instead leaves the audience guessing just like the film's protagonist, only slowly revealing its backstory while also giving out many false leads to lead one astray, all the while going strong on suspense, with well-placed explosions of violence. And the finale, and the idea behind it, sure pack a punch. And an effective directorial effort and a solid small ensemble cast help making this pretty cool genre entertainment.
