An unholy alliance between two damaged souls leads them on a disturbing descent into the depraved realms of black magic. Sophia is a grieving mother desperate to make contact with her murdered son. Joseph is an anti-social, alcoholic expert in the occult who reluctantly agrees to help her. Holed up in a remote house amidst the desolate wilds of Northern Wales, the two embark on a grueling six-month series of dark rituals that will push them both to the physical and psychological breaking point.

This movie started out well tense and atmospheric and in the middle it just petered out and by the end it didn't make any sense at all. It could have been a great movie but the writers failed it. I wouldn't recommend it.

I liked the movie. The film was made in Europe (England?) so don't expect an Americanized version of spookiness. Scary? Well, maybe; but the message at the end is what keeps you in your seat. Reminded me of the movie 'The Sentinel' from the 1970's .

I was very impressed with this stark, moody and mysterious movie. The plot and story is not standard scary movie fare, but delves deeper into the occult and the psychological forces of people willing to sacrifice so much to reach their ends. This is a movie of slow intense build up as you begin to understand the two characters. Two people locked into a remote estate home for months together, working through grueling rituals and hard work of the Abramelin Procedure. This movie was a much better researched movie into historical occult practices than the usual drivel of pretty witches with red eyes saying a couple of latin words to great effect. The actors created complex characters with both black and white in their souls. The score by Ray Harmon was spacious with unusual sounds and dark timbres, frightening because you really are not sure what you are hearing, demons or creaking wood timbers?
The script tells the audience what the characters want, yet when it arrives it is a surprise to all.

A mother longing for her brutally murdered son endures love, love lost, tragedy, forgiveness and the willingness to do anything to make it better. Well acted with only 2 main (Irish) actors. I googled IMBD and was surprised how little information they had on these actors. I was hoping to see more features. Sometimes the “somber atmospheric music, somber organ music,, faint scrapes and creaks, and dark atmospheric music” was a little much. Could have done with a little less of the walking slowly down the dark hallways. !
