A young woman returns to the place of her bleak childhood. No longer able to suppress memories of her cruel parents and strange sister, she is forced to confront the past and some terrible truths! Jakop Ahlbom's imaginative homage to the horror movie genre is ingenuously gruesome, genuinely scary and frequently very funny.



Referencing Gothic spine-chillers as well as more recent frighteners like The Shining, Rosemary's Baby and The Exorcist, Horror will have you shuddering at the edge of your seat.

BWW Review: BIG NIGHT Starts Humorously but Changes Direction After a Senseless Attack
by Shari Barrett - Sep 18, 2017
