Teacher Julia Meadows (Keri Russell) comes back to the Oregon community she left many years ago due to her fatherā€™s abuse, only to become involved with a 12-year-old boy (Jeremy T. Thomas) in her class who has a dark secret. A new genre for Scott Cooper; his version of a horror movie shares the same kind of grim atmosphere and working-class environs as his Out of the Furnace (2013). At the heart of the story lies an old native legend. Contrived moments are overshadowed by a fine cast, a realistic approach and a relentlessly dark but effective climax where Russell battles monsters, new and old.
