A must-see. They got it right! This quiet film is gonna scare the wits out of you! Right off the bat, the biggest question seems to be, “will this movie scare me?” And the answer is a resounding yes…but not in the clichéd ways of gore and guts. No sir, this flick is all about the slow burn. It earns all of its jumps and each one of its heebee jeebees subtly. Be sure to see this film. If you miss it, you’ll regret it!
During the summer of 1973, 8-year-old Steven is sent to the Pennsylvania countryside to live with his grandparents while his mother and father work through their marital troubles.

Haunted by news reports of the Manson murders aftermath, Steven’s world intertwines with his grandmother’s love of late night horror films and pushes him toward the mystery and darkness of the cornfields that surround their small farm. Eventually Steven enters the fields where he makes a terrible discovery. Then, menacing noises begin haunting the family from outside at night and soon turn to violence. Though Steven s family tries to protect him, whatever’s lurking in the fields is about to make their lives a living nightmare.
