Not much of a horror film at all

After each receives a strange letter, the children of a strained family reunite to help sell the family farmhouse and put their tragic background to rest, but the longer they stay the more they realize that keeping the past buried will put everyone around them in danger.

There wasn't a whole lot to like here as there are some issues. Among the better qualities here is the film's focus on stranged family relationships between everyone that adds a sense of dread to the proceedings. As we're initially introduced to the two guys living on the farm with an antagonistic relationship between them, this sets the stage for the revelations to come later on once the other family members get together for their meetup and the darker secrets that are revealed. Seeing the way the other kids have turned out due to this later announcement which ties everything together as knowing what we do about the situation later on gives that context and clarity to how their lives have turned out including the one now involved with the criminals and the sister with her troubled marriage. There's some energy to the revelation sequence since this has some chasing and brutal kills which gives this part of the film a different tone and ends up holding this up overall. However, the problem that emerges here is that none of this is remotely interesting or scary. The multifaceted structure, featuring the lives of the two on the farm before going into the second part with the convict getting his mission in order, is barely related to the genre at all. A tortured family drama involving a father verbally abusing his slow son or a chaotic crime thriller featuring a luckless convict caught up in debt trying to trick a girl away from her gypsy parents aren't in the slightest bit scary, exciting or thrilling at all, keeping this one completely removed from any kind of genre activity for as long as it does. This is never dull at all, but with no focus on the genre conventions for nearly the entire time it's easy to lose interest here, which is the main drawback to be had here with very little genre qualities present.

Rated Unrated/R: Violence and Graphic Language.

Eighty percent of the ratings score for this film are either an 8, 9, or a 10 (57%). Yeah, that's not too fishy at all...nope. Probably few of those are from people involved in the production of this film, or anyone who's booked this for showing on the festival circuit. Nope, nothing partisan or self-serving responsible for the 8.4 rating for this film...totally believable.
