She may seem like a sweet all American girl, but deep inside, she harbors an immense otherworldly evil. The troubled family must now put their trust in their captor, as they try to survive the night...”
With a firm stance in “old school” horror filmmaking, the production will follow strict practical effects only approach to achieve the many, sure to be remembered, special effects sequences throughout the film.
