On the eve of his Grandfather's funeral, a young man receives his inheritance. It is not a dowry of riches, but instead a simple manila envelope containing photographs and a letter. As the befuddled young man sifts through the worn and tattered photos he can not believe his eyes. The images are horrific. Image after image of dead bodies neatly stacked in rows. Ovens filled with half-burned human corpses. In shock, he slowly sifts past the horrible imagery to the letter, and reads his Grandfather's words, a powerful and impassioned recounting of that fateful day, April 11, 1945, when he and his company came upon the Buchenwald concentration camp.
Inheritance is a labor of love based on director Paul Cuoco's experience learning that his Grandfather was a liberator at the Buchenwald concentration camp during World War II. Using his Grandfather's photographs combined with thorough research, Cuoco crafted this film to honor his Grandfather and all of the men who witnessed these atrocities first hand, as well as to honor the memory of those who were forced to endure it.

On the other hand, there's nothing wrong with watching a director pull off some really creepy moments now and then: in this genre which has nearly been buried by special effects and remake after remake, it's mildly entertaining to see someone go for something homegrown and sort of original.
As well as being a curious kind of warning to the young about the elderly, the psychic terror wrought by the cruel old Mrs. Baker (played with a gleaming, believable ferocity by Marjorie Nelson) on Jen Taylor's ever suffering Abbie Nelson is something to see: in the end, it is Abigail's good will which damns her and has her dressing up like Mrs. Baker, talking like Mrs. Baker in most inappropriate settings and times; eventually even getting in the most imprudent habit of sleeping with Mrs. Baker bedside doctor, whom Mrs. Baker found "handsome and striking".
The best part of this film is the ending, which I won't reveal: let's just say the director did not ruin the film entirely and throws a punch of excellence by not taking the easy way out. Worth a rental for starved horror fans, definitely.
We were inspired to do so, after learning that Trey Parker and Matt Stone did something similar when their commentaries were not included on the SOUTH PARK DVD. We believe it'll be worth the trouble, CHUD.com had this to say about our tracks:
"This is one of the better commentary tracks out there. The uncomfortable pauses that usually plague these things are almost nonexistent and what these gentleman have to say is actually interesting."
We hope you enjoy the film.
If you decide to see this film, it would be unfair to judge it against big production movies. This is an independent film and I think it does a great job for what it is. Marjorie Nelson's character was positively creepy and Jen Taylor was believable and likable.
If you want something fresh, different and definitely scary, then you can't go wrong with this film.
