Synopsis

Following the death of her mother and family patriarch, Annie Graham (Toni Collette) attempts to quell her grief and continue on with her life. She starts to notice strange occurrences following her family, mostly concentrated on her 13-year old daughter Charlie, (Milly Shapiro), who Annie says was her mother’s favorite.

Charlie is a brooding and deeply disturbed teenager whose behavior begins to concern her family, including father Steve (Gabriel Byrne) and brother Peter (Alex Wolff). Paranormal forces plaguing the family begin to worsen, focusing much of their attacks on Peter. As ancestral secrets about the family begin to emerge, Annie must attempt to uncover the truth and overcome the spirits that threaten their safety.

  • 4 stars "By the end of the movie... I had to sit and think.... "WTF did I just watch???""
  • 5 stars "I really hope Toni Collette gets an Oscar nomination. I know this is not a genre that gets recognized often but watching her unravel was just incredible. The film is fantastic, not your typical horror so it won't appeal to everyone - but I loved it. A slow-burn of a movie that keeps you guessing."
  • 5 stars "People will say that the Exorcist sucks. People will say that Jaws was a comedy. Some people say Get Out was "okay". The thing is, people's subjective viewpoints do not stop this film from being a masterpiece. Don't listen to the layman. If you are a REAL horror fan, you will love this."
