It is a local production, filmed in Seattle and Astoria, and it is a measure of how much I was drawn in that after the initial scene (somewhere just west of Pike Place Market) I completely forgot to play "spot the location." In a way, I think for me the use of places I know pretty well (based on the credits) added to the eeriness of the film, since it gave things a sort of disjointed familiarity. However, I think even folks not-from-around-here would find it successfully atmospheric.
Russell Marsh, estranged from his family, has fled his hometown Rivermouth for Seattle to escape harassment for being gay. When his mother dies, he returns for the funeral and to deal with executing her estate. There are ...complications, and Russ ends up dealing with the haunting past in a manner somewhat less than metaphorical.
Strong performances, gorgeous scenery, innovative camera work, and slightly muddy sound; Shadow over Innsmouth with a west-coast twist. Recommended; I liked it enough to plan to obtain the DVD and accost people with it.
