"The Stepfather" in the Countryside of England

Rating: 6/10

In the countryside of England, the lonely farmer Nancy (Kierston Wareing) raises her daughters Hanna (Skye Lourie) and Amy (Maisie Lloyd) with financial difficulties in her farm with her only employee Cooper (David Bradley) since her husband has disappeared a long time ago. Her neighbor Karsten (Terry Stone) and his son intend to buy her farm and is pressing the family in an abusive way.

Out of the blue, the wanderer Aden (Vincent Regan) appears in the farm and helps Nancy with the delivery of the offspring. Aden explains that he was a friend of her husband Dean in an offshore rig and he offers to work for food and lodging. Nancy accepts the offer and sooner she has a love affair with Aden. But either Nancy or Aden have dark secrets and Nancy finds that Aden is actually a psychopath and her family is in danger.

"The Holding" is a rip-off of "The Stepfather" that takes place in the countryside of England. The plot is predictable and uses the clichés of the genre, but the acting is good and raises tension with the dangerous situation. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): "Passado Obscuro" ("Obscure Past")
