Seeking a fresh start, newly divorced Sarah (Oscar®-nominee Elisabeth Shue; "Leaving Las Vegas," "Piranha 3D") and her daughter Elissa (Oscar®-nominee Jennifer Lawrence; "X-Men: First Class," "Winter’s Bone") find the house of their dreams in a small, upscale, rural town. But when startling and unexplainable events begin to happen, Sarah and Elissa learn the town is in the shadows of a chilling secret. Years earlier, in the house next door, a daughter killed her parents in their beds, and disappeared - leaving only a brother, Ryan (Max Thieriot, "My Soul to Take"), as the sole survivor. Against Sarah's wishes, Elissa begins a relationship with the reclusive Ryan - and the closer they get, the deeper they're all pulled into a mystery more dangerous than they ever imagined.

2012 Guide Analysis: "Tonderai made a name for himself with the BIFA nominated Duel-esque thriller "Hush", and now he's back with this $7 million Ottawa-shot indie romantic thriller which got picked up by Relativity for release this April.
The story follows a mother and daughter who move to a new town and find themselves living next door to a house where a young girl murdered her parents. When the daughter befriends the surviving son, she learns the story is far from over.
The project marks the first script from "Breakdown" and "U-571" writer/director Jonathan Mostow in twelve years, his co-scribe David Loucka however is coming off the odious "Dream House" so the end product could go either way."
