“I just need another hit, just one more,” maintains Ethan Hawke's true-crime author, Ellison, who has hauled his sweet little family to a house containing a horrifying secret.

Ellison unearths a Super-8 film in the attic, which depicts a family of four being hung from a tree in his new home's back garden. Does he get his understanding wife and children out of there? No, the selfish sod starts digging away for clues. Yet another nasty, quite effective US horror.
