Synopsis

Set in the 1970s, the action happens in and around a remote farm inherited by William Ziel (Garth Breytenbach) after the death of his father. For bankrupt William, his wife Sarah (Inge Beckmann) and their young niece Mary (Keita Luna), who they’ve adopted following the death of her parents, relocating to the countryside is a chance to begin again.And so the scene is set for some sort of gothic gorefest in which a family falls apart because they’re not only unsuited for country life but because the farmhouse they’re in is haunted. The set-up is fairly classic: The family is sequestered in some faraway location surrounded by dark, magnificent mountains. Cue the antique oil lanterns, flickering candles and creaky floorboards.
