REVIEW WRITTEN BY: MAGNUS BLOMDAHL. SCREENSHOTS

Now, this is what I call a debut! First time director Ted Geoghegan celebrates his roots with this classic slow burner, a project dripping of passion and love for the genre.

In the lead we have Barbara Crampton – you might have seen her in movies like From Beyond, Re-Animator and You're Next. Nothing special … – and Andrew Sensenig. A middle aged couple moving to the countryside of New-England, trying to cope with the death of their son. But the house bears a secret and soon gets badly burned, and that's being nice, figures are climbing up from the cellar inviting them to a party, as barbeque.

It gets really spooky, but also with a nice dry cosy everyday humour, kind of like Polanskis "The Tenant" or Ti Wests "The Innkeepers". Try this with some scones and a warm cup of tea, you won't be disappointed. As a bonus you also get to see Larry Fessenden eating his own sock high on weed.

Fans of Italian genre-film from the 70/80s are going to cry bloody tears of happiness. We Are Still Here is a map of horror references. Fulci, Don't Look Now, House of the Devil and some Lovecraft, it's a work of art, almost mathematical.
