Last night I finally watched this film on NetFlix. I'd heard several people compliment it so I pushed play and settled in. To say that I was pleased with WE ARE STILL HERE would be an understatement. This film turns out to be the best haunted house/malevolent ghost horror films I've seen in years. I won't spoil anything about the story other than to say it takes place during a snowy 1979 winter at an isolated country home. Said home has a dark history stretching back decades that has kept the place deserted most of the time. A grieving couple have chosen to move into the house to get away from memories of their recently passed son but the wife still feels the presence of that child. Things escalate when another couple come to visit them for a weekend.
This is a very well written and strongly acted movie. The script is well paced, clever and features a few smart twists on this type of story. The cast is fantastic with genre stalwarts Barbara Crampton and Larry Fessenden doing a fair amount of the heavy lifting. It was also great to see Monty Markham in a supporting role as the neighbor that lets the new homeowners in on the house's past. Ghost story lovers should be aware that the level of graphic violence in the latter half of the film is pretty high. I highly recommend seeking this one out.
