Ethan Hawke stars in this chilling horror about a true crime writer who moves to a new home with his family only to discover a box of Super 8 home movies in the attic that depict the grisly murders of the family who lived there previously. Deciding that these murders should be the topic of his next book, Hawke’s character, Ellison Oswalt, soon begins to realise that there’s something far more sinister and possibly supernatural at play, something that ultimately threatens the lives of his own family.
