When they snap up a spacious mansion in rural Texas at a bargain price, struggling artist Jesse (Cheap Thrills’ Ethan Embry) his wife Astrid (Shiri Appleby) and their daughter Zooey (Kiara Glasco) believe their domestic dreams have come true. Soon, however, the peace is shattered when evil forces begin to emerge from within the house influencing Jesse’s mental state as well as his artistic expression. As family relationships become strained, a mentally disturbed former resident returns to “reclaim” his home and will stop at nothing to do it.

Six years after exploding onto the international horror scene with his debut feature The Loved Ones, Director Sean Byrne returns with this heavy metal-infused tale that combines possession, haunted house shocks and serial killer chills.
