Tricia's husband Daniel 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.' 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 Daniel's presumed death might be anything but 'natural.' The ancient force at work in the tunnel might have set its sights on Callie and Tricia … and Daniel might be suffering a fate far worse than death in its grasp.

Did You Know?
Mike Flanagan wrote the first draft of the screenplay in two sittings.
Very Good Low Budget Horror
If you come to this expecting something along the lines of Saw then you
will be disappointed. It is a fairly slow moving, character driven,
existential horror. That said, there are a good number of scares and
tense, edge of your seat scenes.
It is well done – good cinematography, acting, soundtrack and story.
Hopefully the director will continue the good work on his next film,
from the decent way the characters were written and top notch direction
(for what I guess was a small budget)this is a truly excellent movie.
Well done to all involved.
