You're scaring me.
Glen and his daughter are headed to her ballerina recital. He decides to stop and do some hunting and the next thing you know the two of them are in a homeless camp. Sophia, the daughter, is haunted by ghosts or shadow people. Only she can see them. There are clues that Glen's story is not quite correct about the death of his family. I could point to films that are similar theme that are better, but that would give away the ending.
The film was made by Steve Pullen and family (cheaper than paying people). Steve wrote, directed, produced, edited, and starred in the feature. It has a feel good ending. The scares came from the horror make-up. Slow at times.
Guide: F-word. Implied sex. No nudity.
Slow, pointless, and awful
What a garbled mess! I don't take time to write many reviews, especially negative ones, but this has so many fake positive reviews that convinced me to rent the movie, well someone needs to tell the truth. Maybe the director had an idea in his head, but miserably failed to transfer it to the scree. He must've written the 8 star review because many facets described in the review never materialize in screen. Then we have a 10 star review clearly written by Pullens wife "the father was so handsome" lmao they lived in a homeless camp and he looked the part. Honestly, the acting was the best part, so maybe he should concentrate on that area. The movie never even tries to establish how they ended up homeless in the swamp until flashbacks late in the movie, and by this time it's too late and only confuses the situation. It's almost as if Pullen had 3 movies in mind and couldn't decide which to produce, as many aspects of the movie just don't fit together with one another. Simply put, the movie is boring and pointless. I still don't know what it was supposed to be about. And the inconsistencies, wow! I normally don't care if maybe in one shot a glass of water is half full and in the next it's full, but omg the various states of this guys beard is ridiculous. In the final scene while running to his daughter, both the main character and his father totally change wardrobe mid scene and he goes from full beard to trimmed beard. I mean, they're dead already so I guess anything is possible but it doesn't appear to be done in purpose. Then you have to love that he's browsing the internet in the middle of the swamp outside a homeless camp like he's a walking wireless hotspot. I really don't know what to say other than I'm warning you, please don't waste your time. I fell asleep watching it the first night and terribly regret going back to finish it the next day.

A meandering mess
A homeless camp is a terrible metaphor for the realm of hungry ghosts or whatever you want to call it. It's an idea that seems like it might be deep until you give it any serious thought. And the whole movie hangs on that metaphor so I'm sure the writer thought it very clever when he concocted it. And most of what happens in the first half of the movie makes no sense once that twist is revealed. This trend of non scary horror that takes itself very seriously really needs to go.
