In an isolated farm community, young and hopeful Rachel Wade is sent down an emotionally destructive path after the tragic death of her mother. Forced to leave home by her grieving father, Rachel and her younger sister Anna return years later to find their father missing and the community deserted. The few remaining people are not the same. They seem devoid of emotion, just empty husks controlled by some unknown desire. Haunted by fractured memories and nightmarish visions of her mother's death, Rachel struggles to piece together the events leading up to her father's disappearance. But the search for answers quickly turns into a deadly race for survival.

Saw this recently and absolutely loved this movie!
The cinematography is absolutely gorgeous, creating a strong sense of place. The script is tight and there are some great performances from a strong cast of actors. The lead performance from the elder of the sisters is really compelling.
Overall the story is an intriguing mixture of influences - both traditional genre horror combined with more complex psychological elements. I don't want to post any spoilers but the story centres around a fractured family with a trauma in their past. This resurfaces with terrible consequences later in their lives.
Amazing quality and values for a supposedly 'low budget' production... The locations and special effects - and especially the cinematography - are like something only a major studio could afford.
An outstanding debut!
Would love to see it get a UK release so I can see it again.
