It’s no secret that we at Icons of Fright absolutely adored Ted Geoghegan’s completely original and fresh ghost story, WE ARE STILL HERE (review). It’s a breath of fresh air, and one of the most entertaining viewing experiences I’ve had the privilege to watch in quite some time. Horror fans dying to watch the Barbara Crampton, Larry Fessenden and Lisa Marie-led flick can now rejoice though, as Dark Sky Films is set to bring the ghosts back, when the film hits theaters and VOD beginning June 5th. You fright fanatics would be doing yourselves quite the favor by checking this one out!
After the death of their college age son, Anne and Paul Sacchetti (Barbara Crampton and Andrew Sensenig) relocate to the snowswept New England hamlet of Aylesbury, a sleepy village where all is most certainly not as it seems. When strange sounds and eerie feelings convince Anne that her son’s spirit is still with them, they invite an eccentric, New Age couple (Larry Fessenden and Lisa Marie) to help them get to the bottom of the mystery.
They discover that not only are the house’s first residents, the vengeful Dagmar family, still there – but so is an ancient power. A primal darkness slumbers under the old home, waking up every thirty years and demanding the fresh blood of a new family.
An altogether new take on the haunted house genre that deftly mixes human drama and comedy, WE ARE STILL HERE is a couple’s terrifying journey through darkness and loss set against the freezing New England winter.
