Don’t you just hate when undead beings stick around in your house? It is always a big bummer.
This is the case for the household in the indie horror, We Are Still Here. The film comes from writer/director Ted Geoghegan with a cast that includes: Barbara Crampton, Andrew Sensenig, Lisa Marie, and Larry Fessenden.
The film takes place in the cold, wintery fields of New England where a lonely old house wakes up every thirty years – and demands a sacrifice. You know, just New England things!
The trailer looks pretty generic, but the word out of SXSW (where the film premiered) seems to say that We Are Still Here is a refreshingly scary horror film that has a lot of personality to it. Geoghegan has been a festival darling and this could be his big breakout horror flick that brings the public to him.
We Are Still Here opens in theaters on June 5.
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.
