There are fates worse than death.
Tricia's husband Daniel has been missing for seven years. Her younger sister Callie comes to live with her as the pressure mounts to finally declare him 'dead in absentia.' As Tricia sifts through the wreckage and tries to move on with her life, Callie finds herself drawn to an ominous tunnel near the house. As she begins to link it to other mysterious disappearances, it becomes clear that Daniel's presumed death might be anything but 'natural.' The ancient force at work in the tunnel might have set its sights on Callie and Tricia... and Daniel might be suffering a fate far worse than death in its grasp.

Not as good as occulus, but really close. The movie is very slow, but it is so well made that the intensity never really lets go. You always keep wondering what is going to happen next.

The story does have some logic flaws, but because of how interesting everything is, it doesn't really get distracting.

La enésima demostración de que para hacer una buena película de terror (o de lo que sea) no hace falta presupuesto salvajes mi efectos especiales bombásticos sino una buena idea y sobre todo una puesta en escena ajustada e imaginativa. Y es que se puede decir más con menos, y dar mucho mucho miedo enseñando lo mínimo y sugiriendo el resto.

Giving it a shot via Netfux Streaming for my 31 Days Of Horror. I've heard mixed things, but I loved OCULUS, so fingers crossed.
