We Are Still Here

We Are Still Here
Posted on July 2, 2015 by James Shults

Release Date: June 5, 2015

Director: Ted Geoghegan

Overall Rating: Bad

A haunted home in a small, New England town awakens every 30 years to sacrifice its inhabitants. A couple has just moved in.

The Good

The atmosphere of the first ten minutes of We Are Still Here made this movie seem like it was going to be far more interesting than it was. Unfortunately, it wasn’t more interesting. There is some solid acting here, particularly from Larry Fessenden, whose performance is a lot of fun in an otherwise boring movie.

The Bad

SPOILERS: One of the town folk, a person who clearly wants the family to stay and be consumed by the house also tells the couple about gruesome crimes that were committed by the original owners of the home. It makes no sense for the character to tell them this.

The Ugly

The manifestation of the spirits in the house is realized somewhat falsely, seemingly without any real rules to how they behave. Most notably, they’re not contained to the house. On the upside, the creatures/ghosts look fantastic with some interesting blood effects.
