Synopsis

When Ellen, the matriarch of the Graham family, passes away, her daughter's family begins to unravel cryptic and increasingly terrifying secrets about their ancestry.

Our Take

7.4
Bilal Zouheir

A chilling and dark movie to be especially appreciated by true suspense lovers. At the funeral of the family’s matriarch, no one is emotional except the granddaughter, whose grieving is disturbing, to say the least. When both grieving and not grieving are unsettling, you can tell what kind of family (and movie) this will be.

Yeah, I’m inclined to agree. I watch a lot of horror movies, and this one has gotten a ton of praise. I can see where people are coming from, but for some reason this movie didn’t do it for me. It did make me jump a few times, and I found myself asking, “Can they really show that in a movie??” Worth a watch just for that I think, but it’s not the kind of stuff that haunts your dreams either.

This movie was more gross than scary.
