Movie Info

In this tense tale of psychological terror, Vivian Miller (Shelby Young) is a young twenties woman who's serving out her jail sentence at a work release program in the Midwest. Her 90 days of probation takes her to The Cawdor Barn Theatre, a dilapidated summer stock theater run by Lawrence O'Neil (Cary Elwes). Lawrence, a failed Broadway director, is now reduced to staging amateur productions with young parolees and raging over the mistakes from his past. Vivian's arrival in Cawdor starts a terrifying series of events that brings Lawrence's secret past to the present. After Vivian views an old taped stage production of Macbeth, a force of evil is unleashed which soon turns its sights on her. With the help of Roddy (Michael Welch), a local outcast, Vivian sets about trying to discover who the supernatural killer on the tape is before she becomes the next victim.

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (3)

  • Though never outright dull, "A Haunting in Cawdor" manages to provide few incidents of genuine interest while leaving potentially rewarding character and thematic elements unexplored.

  • It is an interesting take on Macbeth - not an adaption but the Scottish play serves as an inspiration to help with the narrative.

  • We will always forgive low budget horror for below par effects, score and even acting if we are presented with an engaging or intelligent plot, but unfortunately this film offers neither.

  • There's potential for a fun horror movie with Phil Wurtzel's A Haunting in Cawdor, but the end result is as uninspired as its title.
