Synopsis:


Jesse and Astrid buy themselves an idyllic home in Texas with enough space for him to be able to develop his art work. But soon after moving in, Jesse’s paintings begin to take on a darker, more disturbing tone, as if some sort of strange force has possessed his mind. The eagerly-awaited return of the director of The Loved Ones is an original and distressing approach to the haunted house theme.
