Good movie, entertaining enough, but could have built the lore up.

The plot is solid enough. The movie is entertaining enough also meaning that if you want something new to watch in the horror genre- this movie is just entertaining enough, The lore could have been improved upon, and with some more back story, perhaps even some flashbacks with some creative storytelling and this film could have been a gem.

The movie at just 84 minutes doesn't provide enough time to the viewer to understand what this evil is that has descended on this family. We are told a few bits a pieces about he first owner who ran a funeral parlour out of this home. Something about the owner Dagmar hiding or selling the bodies and that the house was built on some ancient evil. Other than all that we are left to guess at what the heck the rest of the back story is and what it has to do with the old boiler downstairs.

If only they took another 15 minutes of screen time to flesh out the sordid past and we could have left this movie more satisfied with a true understanding of the houses evil past, where and why and how.

What we are left with is a gore fest with jump scares that are really nothing new. It's just a good old fashioned horror with a 2 star rating.

Fulci influenced horror

Anne (Barbara Crampton, Chopping Mall) and Paul are getting over the death of their son Bobby, so they decide to move to quiet, rural New England. But the moment they enter their new house, Anne claims that Bobby is there and Cat, their neighbor, tells them to leave.

Turns out that their house was once a funeral home, where the Dagmar family sold corpses and buried empty caskets before being chased out of town.

Anne invites two spiritualist friends, May (Lisa Marie, The Lords of Salem) and Jacob, who hope to help her contact Bobby. Their son is due to arrive later, but as soon as he gets there, he and his girlfriend are killed by whatever is inside the house. The couples are at dinner, where everyone in town treats them with suspicion. That's because the house needs to be fed every thirty years or the evil inside it will seek out fresh souls and destroy the town.

A seance leads to all hell breaking loose, with the spirit of the father of the Dagar clan possessing Jacob and revealing that the villagers used his family as a sacrifice. The other townspeople come to the house to kill everyone inside, only to be murdered by the vengeful ghosts of the Dagmar family before leaving the house, finally having found revenge.

Anne and Paul walk into the cursed basement, then smile at the camera as they greet their son.

We Are Still Here announced the arrival of writer/director Ted Geoghegan as a name to watch in horror films. And his influences are obvious - many of the characters in this film are inspired by Fulci's The House by the Cememtary. I didn't expect much of this film and was pleasantly surprised by how fast it moves and how intense the gore gets. It's as close to a Fulci film as it seems we'll get these days.

Spoiler alert. Haunted house story

This was one of the worst movies I've ever seen. The acting was horrible and the story line was stupid and then confusing mixed with horrible acting. I was drunk when I watched this and all the alcohol still didn't make it better. I can't believe all the reviews of the people saying anything above 4 stars. Absolutely horrible movie. I wish I had that hour and a half of my life back. I really do. This movie was not scary at all.
