They ALMOST had it….

Rating: 4/10

I know… the poster says in theaters January 28th, but I have yet to
see evidence that it actually was. Just because a movie goes straight
to video does not mean it's a bad movie. However, this one is on many

It all starts out just peachy. Emily (Hailey) and Nate (Harold) are
living in the city…Emily's pregnant, Nate's an up-and-coming
artist…. life is grand. Then Emily has a miscarriage and they move to
Nate's old family farmhouse out in the country without even an

While setting up the new house, Emily comes across an old trunk and
it's filled with Nate's ancestral heritage. Seems harmless, right?
Wrong. Once she brings that out, strange things start to happen, she
starts to see different things, yadda yadda, blah blah, I'm sure
everyone is familiar on how stories like that turn out. Besides, I
don't want to "spoil" anything for anybody, everyone should watch this
movie and be plenty disappointed with it as much as I was — it's only

The problem is not with the story on this one, folks. And it's not even
the acting… no, this one has some other issues — let's dive right
in, shall we? Let's start off with the music/soundtrack. Just because
YOU PLAY IT LOUD does not mean that I will jump or even feign being
scared, OK? Many times I was struggling to hear dialog because the damn
music was BLARING in my ears, what's up with that? Did a deaf sound
editor work on this picture? Next… LOGIC. Simple logic, people —
please adhere to it. If someone dies at your place of residence while
you're having a huge shindig, don't you think you would at the very
least get ONE cop over there to question people? What the fu— do they
live in Mayberry or something? And lastly, predictable. I seen what was
going to happen two miles away and I was on a winding road.

It's a shame because the actors do the best with what they are given,
the story is not bad at all and production values were really good.
There are no special effects or makeup to go ga-ga over, so that's a
non-issue. A satisfactory ending moved this puppy up a notch… but,
not by much. More reviews at www.soveryterry.com Final Grade: C-
