Overview

A haunted family receives an unwelcome visitor who seeks to absolve them of their sins in this grim thriller from comic book writer-turned-filmmaker Philip Gelatt. As the Smith family struggles to break free of the lingering stigma that turned them into small-town pariahs, smooth-talking Southern gentlemen Nick Patrick Breen shows up on their doorstep claiming that he needs a place to sleep for the night because his car has broken down. Later, at the dinner table, a casual conversation between Nick, father Matt Richard Bekins, mother Marilyn Betsy Aidem, and daughter Gloria Alexandra Chando quickly turns dark, hinting at something deeply sinister hidden just beneath the surface of the Smiths' picture-perfect home. Meanwhile, brother Quentin Charlie Hewson and his girlfriend, Lynne Nina Lisandrello, hatch a plan to leave their small town behind for a fresh start elsewhere. Unfortunately for the Smiths, Nick has other plans. But later, as the true nature of the family's dark past becomes known, the unwanted intruder realizes that he may be in over his head.
