Storyline

Featuring shades of Edgar Allen Poe's, "A Tale-Tell Heart", 1922, based on the Stephen King novella of the same name, centers on simple but proud farmer, Wilfred James, who, with his young son, murders his wife to gain ownership of her inherited land. Shortly after, however, strange and supernatural occurrences begin to plague both James and his farm. Is it just simple bad luck, or is it the work of something much more sinister? Written by Jake Logsdon

Goofs

The murder at the beginning takes place in 1922 and yet the sheriff who comes to the farm to investigate does so in what appears to be a very nice 1930 Model A pickup. The Model A wouldn't even be built until 1927. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Wilfred James: [writing] To whom it may concern. My name is Wilfred Leland James, and this is my confession. The issue that led to my crime and damnation was 100 acres of good land in Hemingford Home, Nebraska, willed to my wife, Arlette Christina Winters James, following the death of her father. It was much my intention to add her 100 to our 80-acre freehold farm, as it was to someday pass it all on to my boy, Henry Freeman James, and to his thereafter.

Incredible movie. Gotta read the book ASAP!
22 October 2017 | by See all my reviews

I loved it from start to end. Thomas Jane gives another excellent performance!

The plot is thrilling and makes you want to keep watching even if it's a slow-paced film. It reminded me a lot of old school horror/suspense films from the 80's. The ones that didn't depend on jump-scares or stupid demonic creatures to make the whole movie.

Don't listen to those few people arguing the film was boring because it was slow. Maybe they're used to jump-scares and serial killers. This is a very simple but deep plot that is worth seeing.
