A real es­tate journo who longs to cover the crime beat gets her chance when her fam­ily is bru­tally mur­dered. Re­search­ing the killings takes her to a night­mar­ish town that’s made a deal with the devil...

Saw fran­chise alum Dar­ren Lynn Bous­man chucks in all kinds of clash­ing in­flu­ences – a bit of neo-noir, a dash of MR James, plus a pinch of grimy mid-’00s tor­ture porn – but some­how, through sheer en­thu­si­asm, it works. Messy, yes, but en­joy­ably creepy any­way.
