    One man, one house, one night. THE LAST WILL AND TESTAMENT OF ROSALIND LEIGH tells the story of Leon Leigh, an antiques collector who inherits a house from his estranged mother only to discover that she had been living in a shrine devoted to a mysterious cult. Soon, Leon comes to suspect that his mother’s oppressive spirit still lingers within her home and is using items in the house to contact him with an urgent message. As paranormal events mount, Leon comes to suspect that there is a darker truth to his deceased mother’s religious convictions.

    A solid success for a writer/director with a small budget on his first feature length film. I'm excited to see what this guy does next. Amid the constantly recycled concepts and axioms that both plague and serve as hallmarks for the horror genre, this film manages to stand out as original. The story is nothing wowing and the horror elements are technically not unique. But the approach was! Because of this, I struggle to compare this to any other horror.

    After her passing and leaving everything to her only son, antiquities dealer and atheist Leon (Aaron Poole) visits his estranged mother's (Vanessa Redgrave) home which is neatly, but densely decorated with all manner and medium of Christian--and not so Christian--artifacts, making it somewhat unsettling. The house is also littered with stitched and framed religious adages formed into strange warnings.

    The recently deceased Rosalind Leigh (Vanessa Redgrave; Nip/Tuck) narrates, explaining her distance from her son, her deep religious beliefs and Leon's resentful distance from the faith. In this modern approach to a classic-style ghost story Rosalind, haunted by her past, learns what it will be like to remain forever alone.

    There is plenty of creepy in this house of angel statues and forces which would prey on the non-believers dwelling within. As we question where Leon's soul will fall on the counterbalance weighing Leon's lack of faith against those powers that would claim his ungrateful soul, he his hunted by some manner of beast outside the house.

    This film features only one character that we "see." There are many represented by video or voice (as by phone call), but we watch only Leon interact with his surroundings.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Truly haunting ghost story August 17, 2013
    Format:DVD
    I was so struck by this movie, I watched it two nights in a row - and I can't get it put of my head. Loneliness is at the heart of many great horror movies - and this is one of the best treatments since PSYCHO. It's a deceptively quiet movie, with a very slow build - but it generates a sense of dread that's genuinely unnerving. Beautifully written script, strong acting and a devastating ending.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Simple and Elegant. A ghost story done right... August 16, 2013
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    I've been waiting in anticipation for this movie to become available for home viewing. I've heard many positive things about it as well as the production and I was eagerly ready to soak up a fresh take on the ghost story. This movie definitely sufficed! I will say that it is not a movie for everyone but even the veteran horror fans should be pleased and find much to love about it. It is a slow burn, for sure. For a ghost story, that works to its advantage. You're not quite sure what is going on within the first 15 minutes but it soon becomes clear that the director had far more on his mind than what he's leading on. The Gothic details throughout the house are simply incredible and very eerie with lots of creepy imagery. There is a narration by the wonderful Vanessa Redgrave who plays the deceased Rosalind Leigh throughout the length of the film. Normally this would seem an annoying detraction but it suits this film quite well and adds to the unease you will feel while wandering through the house with the protagonist. There are definitely things that go bump-in-the-nite here and will have the hairs on the back of your neck standing straight up. The tension mounting in this film is really remarkable! Does the ending hold up as well as the rest of the film? For me, not quite. It's not as cohesive as the rest of the movie but it didn't really bother me. It's still a fitting ending and definitely unlike any other ghost story you'll encounter! I highly recommend searching this one out! I feel like the horror genre is more of a letdown anymore but this film helped put my mind at ease that there is still hope! I was really in the mood for a good scary movie and this one delivered in spades! Simple and elegant with beautiful cinematography and wonderful talent to all involved!

    4.0 out of 5 stars When it's scary, it's VERY. October 1, 2013
    Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
    Short version: So, it's true. This one's definitely *not* destined to be one of the great horror films of all time or the next X weeks of "limited release". But consider watching it anyway, because it's really terrifying in five or six spots. Takes a while to build, but that made it more believable to me when The Bad Things Happened.

    A couple more reasons why I actually recommend this one. If,like me, you can't get enough horror and thriller films, but you've developed zombie and vampire fatigue, you may find this one about the house of Rosalind somebody is worth renting to get that handful of very well done terror moments.

    It's no spoiler to mention there's also a classic horror ending, the kind that seems understated on one level, then disturbing a few minutes later. After you've turned out the lights.

    Beyond the scary bits, two things: great acting from the hipster guy we see the most of, and though I'm no expert, some of the best sound effects and overall sound I've heard from any film. Cheesy sound usually betrays low budget films, whatever genre. Not this one, it had major Hollywood budget quality sound on what I'm guessing's possibly a modestly budgeted Canadian board of culture film. And another good point: no shaky cam! Now that I think of it, better than average camera stuff all around --no camera man shadows where there shouldn't be. Many mega budget horror movies don't bother fixing wrong shadows these days.

    What else it seems to me this weird little movie does a worthy job on...First, a familiar dilemma of the full-on macabre that in this film, turns personal: Ever been locked up at night in the house of someone you know who recently died?
