Don't Leave Home
Directed by Michael Tully
Melanie, an artist whose work centers on urban legends, is contacted by a Father Alistair Burke, who, in 1986, painted a portrait of an 8-year-old girl who mysteriously disappears. On the urging of the reclusive priest and his cohort, she heads to the Irish countryside for an art commission. Telling no one where she’s going, Melanie never stops to consider that some urban legends are real. A SHUDDER EXCLUSIVE.

Cool premise, didn't go anywhere. There's so much horror to be had in Irish Catholicism -- especially with a female protagonist -- but this didn't tap into that at all.
Fair atmosphere, probably could've done with some better characters. Unfortunately, it's missing key elements to keep you interested. A slow burn with no real payoff, as it's hard to get invested in the characters.
I like it. This is my second time watching it. Something about it called me back. Yeah.
Soooo boring and long and stupid. Not a fan.
Interesting. This is how you make a slow burn right. Good acting, scenario, and cinematography.
