Movie Info

Director Anthony Hickox (Waxwork) returns to the horror genre with this rural frightener about a Wall Street stockbroker who begins to experience disturbing visions after moving into an English country mansion with her husband and their young son. English expatriate Emma (Natalie Press) made a killing on Wall Street, but now the time has come to reclaim her European roots. Her French husband, Henri (Matthieu Boujenah), is also a successful businessman, and he's just purchased a sprawling estate in the English countryside, where the happy couple plans to raise their son, Thomas. Almost immediately after they move in, however, a series of gruesome visions leaves Emma convinced that something terrible once happened in their house, and that the threat still lingers. To make matters worse, the bottom on Henri's business is starting to fall out, and young Thomas is growing obsessed with a particularly sinister doll. Of course it's always good to have the support of family and friends in such trying times, but somehow Emma can't help but feeling that her brother, Andrew (Lorcan O'Toole), and longtime family friend Charles (Hugh Bonneville) aren't being entirely benevolent with their repeated offers to pitch in around the house. In fact, they seem to be operating on some kind of hidden agenda that raises Emma's suspicions, and leads her to believe something is horribly amiss.

While Knife Edge does have the creaky feel of a 1970s made-for-TV movie, I still liked it. It's got some punch thanks to Hickox, as well as some snazzy visuals ranging from things as big as the haunted house to details as small as creepy little dolls.

A bit derivative, but a nice change of pace. More supernatural thriller than horror, it's well shot, decently acted, and has a great English manor mystery vibe to it. Good soundtrack too.

There was enough good filmmaking to make me really hate the last half hour and then loath the previous hour that built up to it. What a horrible film. Terrible ending.

Hasn't this same movie been made hundreds of times? Busy family getting away from it all to an old house with a history in the middle of nowhere. Stubborn and unbelieving dad, psychic mom, little kid who plays with the ghosts, and an older character who knows more than they're letting on...seen it all before!
