PLOT SPOILERS The film opens with Jewel (Jessica Harthcock) dying in what appears to be an exorcism gone bad. We then jump 14 months to the future where Colin, the priest of the failed exorcism (Miles Dolec) is on a honeymoon with Kayleigh (Lindsay Anne Williams) the sister of the victim, apparently a common thing in Louisiana. They are at the Hotel Hesperides which is explained in a flashback. We then jump to another 8 years in the future where Colin is a famous author and the couple has a child, named for the dead sister, as they live in Savannah. They are hosting two other couples in a clothes optional get together prior to a wedding. Lara (Kristina Emerson) who doesn't wear clothes, can sense things besides a light breeze. When Jewel haunts them on what would be her 26th birthday we get a long numerology explanation, which was more detailed than their one line summary of the works of Immanuel Kant. The film has frequent flashbacks recreating the events leading up to the death of the sister with daddy issues being hinted at early as well as a scientific explanation. Lara, BTW believes in everything and has her own theory of everything which she states in one line which includes "point of singularity" and of course the number 26 as apparently God uses the Gregorian calendar in preference to the Julian calendar. She made the film worth watching, for more than one reason. The flashbacks were confusing as I wasn't sure what we were seeing. Why are the people who were there, acting like this is the first time they were seeing this? Some of the things, sure, but all of it? Apparently taking a pitchfork to the gut is just a minor flesh wound. No sense in dying. Just get up and walk around like you were never struck. "'Tis but a scratch. I've had worse." And or yes, the other twist which you half saw coming. This is a somewhat clever idea. Miles wanted to keep the twist secret until the very end which meant he had to jumble the chronology and create flashbacks that didn't work well. Guide: F-word, sex, nudity (Kristina Emerson)
Celebrated fiction writer and former priest, Colin Hampstead, and his wife, Kayleigh, are tormented by the ghost of her late sister, as the details of her grisly death are slowly uncovered.
