‘We Are Still Here’ is a Damn Good B Movie (Review)

Written by: Paula Limbaugh

Directed by: Ted Geoghegan

Cast: Barbara Crampton, Andrew Sensenig, Lisa Marie

This film was a nominee in the Midnighters category at the SXSW Film Festival in Austin Texas this year. Released June 5 2015 to select theaters and VOD, it is well worth the watch.

Paul (Andrew Sensenig) and Anne (Barbara Crampton) have lost their only son to a car crash; looking for a new start they find an old house in a little New England town where they hope to rebuild their lives. But, this house harbors a dark secret, one the town knows about and is willing to go along with. This house was built atop the grounds of an old mortuary back in the 1800s and the departed souls are lost and angry. Every 30 years they awaken within the house and demand a sacrifice. The town is only too willing to find a family to satisfy its needs.

From the very beginning the house makes its intents known. An electrician working alone in the cellar is attacked, Paul and Anne just assume he was electrocuted; but then things begin to get creepy. Anne invites her psychic friend, May (Lisa Marie) to visit. At once May and her husband sense an evil presence and encourage Anne to leave, but Anne feels the soul of her dead son there and finds comfort in that at first. Eventually the townsfolk fear that Anne and Paul will leave before the house gets its sacrifice and decides to take matters in their own hands with dire consequences.

I’m not going to lie, this is a B movie, but it is a damn good B movie! Great scare factors and elements of surprise. Nice twist at the end. It is a bit like the old horror movies of yore, a refreshing change of pace from the movies being shown today. I really liked it, I was entertained!

Rating: 4/5
