When elderly mother Edna inexplicably vanishes, her daughter Kay and granddaughter Sam rush to their family's decaying country home, finding clues of her increasing dementia scattered around the house in her absence. After Edna returns just as mysteriously as she disappeared, Kay's concern that her mother seems unwilling or unable to say where she clashes with Sam's unabashed enthusiasm to have her grandma back.

Something unique to the horror genre, a genuinely scary film which doesn't rely on leaping bogeymen and camera jolts to make audiences sweat. It's also something of a hybrid, for beneath the creepy demonic effects there is a tragic metaphor at play as one old woman's encroaching dementia becomes a haunted house unto itself. Fear, abandonment, and the crippling dependance that comes with age and illness all find their expression in Natalie Erika James' impressive feature debut, a multi-generational shocker in which the real monster elicits more tears than screams.

Creepy, atmospheric, and well-acted Australian horror movie. It's set almost entirely in a house and centered on a grandmother, mother, and daughter. One of my favourites of 2020.
