Here's the thing - this film is wonderfully shot in some aspects. And I think it's trying to do something really interesting by often switching the camera's gaze so it looks like we are gazing directly from the victims POV. If anything, this film is about how specific places hold trauma because the people within that place have previously suffered trauma and pass down that trauma through generations.

One of the scariest films I’ve ever seen and I don’t say that lightly. Just an absolute technical masterwork too. After this and “Extremity” I’m thinking DiBlasi might be one of the most underrated horror directors out there.
Can’t wait to rewatch this one and possibly bump it up to a full 5
