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.

Critic Reviews for A Haunting In Cawdor

All Critics (7) | Top Critics (1)

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.

March 14, 2016 | Rating: 2/10 | Full Review…

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.

One to miss.

March 8, 2016 | Rating: 1/5 | Full Review…

Protagonist Vivian (Shelby Young) may evoke memories of Natalie Portman in Black Swan or Suspirias Jessica harper. But shes a comparatively underwritten character, failing to convince as a trauma victim.
