Having recovered from a shattering emotional breakdown, college pofessor Ben Marshall relocates to the countryside with his wife and young son, hoping for a fresh start. He has a teaching job lined up and a new home to move into; things finally look to be going Ben's way. Until, that is, he starts to feel that something isn't quite right in the house. Finding himself plagued by spectral visions, Ben becomes obsessed with uncovering the truth behind a local mystery that appears to be putting the lives of his family in danger.
"Beautifully shot on digital 35mm in golden-bronze hues, Blackwood has the high-spec visual polish of a much bigger production. Cinematographer Dale McCReady, a Doctor Who veteran, frames the autumnal English countryside like a series of exquisite paintings. The handsome production design of Michael Howells merits a mention here, as does Lorne Balfe’s classy orchestral score, which hovers in spine-tingling Thomas Newman territory without taking the easy option of melodrama." - The Hollywood Reporter
