Re­lease Date: OUT NOW!

2014 | 15 | DVD A venge­ful spirit, pos­ses­sion and voodoo rit­u­als fig­ure in this lat­est low- bud­get hor­ror from Blum­house, the com­pany that pre­vi­ously brought us the likes of In­sid­i­ous, Sin­is­ter and The Purge. Aussie ac­tor Sarah Snook is rather good as Jessie, who re­turns to her child­hood home in the wilds of Louisiana af­ter los­ing her part­ner and un­born child in a car crash. There she finds mes­sages recorded on VHS by her tarot- lov­ing mother ( now de­ceased), and even­tu­ally dis­cov­ers that her fam­ily has a ter­ri­ble se­cret… Direc­tor Kevin Greutart ( a vet­eran of the Saw fran­chise) con­jures some omi­nous at­mos­phere, but un­til the ex­po­si­tion bomb ex­plodes at the end it’s all a lit­tle un­event­ful.
