Product Description

The Attic

Soon after Emma Callan (Elisabeth Moss - "Mad Men") and her family move into their seemingly picture-perfect Victorian home, Emma begins to have ghastly visions of what appears to be her evil twin. Since no one else has seen this doppelganger, Emma is faced with two terrifying prospects: either she is going insane or she is being haunted by a malevolent spirit, determined to destroy anyone who dares delve into the dark mysteries of “The Attic”. Co-starring Jason Lewis and Catherine Mary Stewart, this riveting film from the director of “Pet Sematary” will be sure to keep you awake at night!

This product is manufactured on demand using DVD-R recordable media.'s standard return policy will apply.

2.0 out of 5 stars The lights are on. but no one's home. June 29, 2009
The Attic (Mary Lambert, 2008)

This is another one of those movies with endless promise that failed completely in the execution. Lambert (The In Crowd) gathered together a sterling cast and presented them with a script (by Tom Malloy, also responsible for The Alphabet Killer, co-written with Robert M. Reitano, an Emmy-winning editor) that desperately needed another few rewrites.

In this one, Emma (Elisabeth Moss from TV's Mad Men) and her family--father Graham (John Savage), mother Kim (Catherine Mary Stuart), and mentally challenged brother Frankie (Love 'n Dancing's Tom Malloy)--have moved out to the country. Emma hasn't left the house since the move. Part of it seems to stem from agoraphobia (one of the places the script could have used a bit of work was in illustrating this better), and the other part from an encounter she had in the attic; when exploring, she uncovered a mirror that seemed to show her not a reflection of herself, but an entirely different person who looks exactly like her. Her inability to leave the house handicaps her when it comes to investigating, which becomes necessary when weird things start happening, but she finds a tenuous ally in a local detective, John Trevor (Sex and the City's Jason Lewis). Together, the two of them have to find out what the deal is with Emma's supposed twin before the twin comes for her family, and for Emma herself.

While the ending is pretty predictable (and the plot twist in the final scene you should be able to see coming from a mile off), that doesn't necessarily make for a bad movie; if there had been anything before that to offset it. There was certainly enough of a chance for that to happen, with so much starpower here, but everyone comes off flat and uninspiring. I normally like John Savage in just about anything, but even he couldn't save this one. Elisabeth Moss gets a lot of screen time, and she's gorgeous, but that's about the only thing I can say to recommend this. **

I'm glad that Elisabeth Moss was able to find her niche with Mad Men because she was simply awful in this pile of crap. The most annoying character I've ever seen. The movie was as predictable as humanly possible. I didn't want to watch this but forced myself to because of Moss. Ouch! I wish I had listened to myself. Yikes!

2.0 out of 5 stars "ATTIC RUMMAGE SALE" September 12, 2014
By Ron
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I thought I finally found a good horror flick the way The Attic starts out, but unfortunately the movie goes nowhere as fast as it started.
The movie had so much talent in front as well as behind the camera that surely I couldn't go wrong with picking this one out of the sea of stinkers out there in stream land?
I found the writing to be the "biggest looser" in this movie because the story doesn't really go anywhere and when it does at the end you have been waiting throughout the entire movie for it and other things to happen. As I mentioned before it starts our fast for a good setup, but then meanders along until the end and along with Moss's affliction that doesn't make much sense to me considering what was going on in the house?
The production values were quite nice except for some acting, direction and again the writing for a movie in this genre and helps this rate 2 stars instead of 1 star.
This was a terrible waste of talent and viewers time to watch what should have been a really good horror/thriller movie with a good cast.
There is some cursing including the f...word and a partially nude young woman (no full/partial frontal female nudity) and a mild sex (implied) and a murder scene with some blood. 2 stars.

1.0 out of 5 stars So bad, it's not even funny! January 8, 2008
By OKube
Terrible (over-)acting, very low production values, unimaginative direction and camera work, ridiculously bad dialog plus an even dumber "story". Buying this ultra-cheap wannabe-thriller is not even a waste of your money, you'll also regret the 80 minutes you spent subjecting yourself to this dreck. So don't even think about it!

2.0 out of 5 stars Terrifying Slow October 12, 2014
By lumay
Format:Amazon Instant Video
I don't mind slow films. I like plot and character development, but this was slow, slow, slow. There were so many loose threads and ideas, but nothing was explained or wrapped up in any way. A touch of emotional and mental breakdown. A touch of the occult. A touch of plot... barely. So disappointing.

A complete aside, but what is it with these moody horror films that insist on dressing the female lead in costumes of lacy, Victoriana-style nightgowns?

1.0 out of 5 stars best of the worst May 1, 2012
By Brad
I watched this movie on Fearnet. Yes. It is horrible, but I love the part where Emma's psychologist is talking to her in her room about if she'll ever get better. He tells her thats her choice if she wants to get better.. which she replies "Who the hell do you think you are? How dare you. How dare you! You listen to me you smug bastard. Do you think I want to see these things? Do you think I want to be in this house? Dont come in here with that smug look on your face and tell me I have a choice." That part is really funny

In spite of the whopping 2 stars that held me back, I liked this one. Nothing mind-blowing, but how often do horror films truly pull that off? I enjoy watching Elisabeth Moss. Read more

The acting is horrible. I don't know what's worse--the abusive, maybe incestual father's behavior or his acting.
