Evil has a new home

Elm Lake House is a 2017 British supernatural horror film about a couple and their young daughter who move into a new house. They know nothing about the brutal, ritualistic murder of a family years ago. They soon realize that a latent evil has awakened, a possessive force that has besieged unsuspecting families like theirs for centuries.

The film is directed by James Klass (Mother Crump or The 12 Dead of Christmas) to a script he wrote with Shannon Holiday (The Tooth Fairy, The Scarecrow’s Bride, Mandy Doll) and Scott Jeffrey (Bad Nun, Madman, Foxcatcher). The film from Proportion Productions stars Becky Fletcher, Andrew Hollingworth and Faye Goodwin.


A man, convinced that Lucifer is in him, brutally murdered his wife and child in a Satanic sacrifice.

Years later, Eric (Andrew Hollingworth), Hayley (Becky Fletcher) and their daughter Penny (Faye Goodwin) move into the same house after it went unsold on the market. They think they’ve got a good deal – but what they don’t know is that the Elm Lake house has been home to Lucifer’s minions for centuries, and it harbors an insidious evil waiting to be unleashed…..

There are a few scary moments, a few good scenes here and there, and there’s even a good amount of tension at times. Unfortunately, he also manages to burst those positive bubbles with some really stupid sequences. The story is distracting, and Hirani and Hollingsworth carry much of the cast. Cryptic rock

It’s a movie to get attached to. It starts out slow, but increases at an alarming rate. Twisted, embarrassing, gory, strange, primitive – this film has it all. An unexpected journey and a nightmare for eternity. I was shocked and surprised…. The society of horrors.

That minor criticism aside, this is easily the scariest British horror film I’ve seen since Elliot Goldner’s Borderlands (2013). This film, full of glorious and terrifying images and full of atmosphere, was a real treat for the audience. Schlock Pit

Elm House will leave you longing for more after seeing it, as it is a dark and uncompromising film. The mix of raw horror and surreal reality makes you witness the events rather than enjoy them. Visually creative and relentless in its execution, it has the original feel of true horror that fans have been waiting for.

At one point, the bedroom door slams shut and a demonic voice screams: Go away! I had to laugh at this unintentional reference. Add a pinch of Rosemary’s Baby, and that’s my only real complaint: a good movie takes elements from two other good movies. If that’s the worst I can write, it’s a solid movie. Nerdy

There are thousands of movies where someone is possessed by Satan or the devil and goes on a rampage, etc. The film has to climb a mountain before it even begins, just to be different. But in this case, the other drawbacks don’t help either. Robla
