A mother and daughter move to a new town and find themselves living next door to a house where a young girl murdered her parents. When the daughter befriends the surviving son, she learns the story is far from over.
Elissa and her mum, whilst trying to start afreash, move to a small town where they have found what they think to be the perfect house. Thanks to the grizzly murder of a couple in the house next door by their daughter four years prior, Elissa and her mum get rent for cheap as not many people want to live there. According to town folklore, the parents were killed late one night by their daughter Carrie-Anne who then fled into the woods, they believe that she drowned but due to a lack of body everyone thinks she has been living in the woods surrounding the homes. Elissa meets Ryan, the remaining family member and begins to fall for him, but everything isn't as it seems.
The acting is nothing special, but Jennifer Lawrence (Elissa) does a great job. Ryan's character is suitably moody and outcast as you would expect his type of character to be in a horror movie. There isn't really much in the way of special effects, just those that stem from physical injuries that are made to look believable.
While this isn't a great movie, Ryan is suitably creepy and has you knowing that something isn't quite right with him, I was pleasantly surprised when what I thought was what was going on, in fact, wasn't going on. If you like horror movies and to still have a little surprise every now and again then this is a good enough film to watch.
