Tricia’s husband has been missing for seven years. Her younger sister Callie comes to live with her as the pressure mounts to finally declare him ‘dead in absentia’. Tricia is reluctant, always holding out hope, but Callie is practical and wants her to move on. As Tricia sifts through the wreckage and tries to move on with her life, Callie finds herself drawn to an ominous tunnel near the house. As she begins to link it to other mysterious disappearances, it becomes clear that his presumed death might be anything but ‘natural.’ Soon it becomes clear that the ancient force at work in the tunnel might have set its sights on Callie and Tricia … and that Tricia’s husband might be suffering a fate far worse than death in its grasp. —IMDb
The whole tone of this film was rather unique for a thriller. This has a couple of the creepiest scenes I've ever seen, and one in particular was done in such a simple way that didn't feel cheap. It was also nice to see the characters pretty fleshed out. Just the right amount of drama and creepiness.
Realistic (in character terms), subtle, raw and cold with haunting music and slow images that brings a frightening and claustrophobic atmosphere. The cast is outstanding - specially, the sisters. The budget conditions didn't allow this movie to shine so bright as it could have. A shame, though. Moral: we rather invente a fantasy to silence the unkown, than accept the reality... but strange things happen, anyway.
I really enjoyed this a lot. Its been so long since I've seen a ghost story that relied on good old fashioned storytelling that I am happy to settle for this near miss. The movie is shot in relatively long shots with a minimum of effects used, mostly in camera. The feeling of dread that I felt was largely achieved with camera work, silence and dialog. Even the soundtrack was very unobtrusive.
