Worthy but flawed

The Inhabitant

2022 / 97m - USA
Thriller, Horror
The Inhabitant poster

Another take on the Lizzie Borden story. Not the classic one though, this time we're following a family of direct descendants of the famous horror legend. In the end, it doesn't impact the story all that much. If you like people going mental and settling scores with an ax, then this might just be the film for you.

Tara is a teen who does pretty well in life, but when she turns 17 she starts to suffer from violent nightmares. Her family is part of the Borden lineage and Tara's aunt was hospitalized for killing her child when she was 16. Tara's mother is worried that her daughter might have inherited some of the feared Borden genes.

The biggest problem with The Inhabitant is that the scares are pretty weak and that the Borden legend isn't strong enough to carry the film by itself. The performances aren't great, the score and cinematography are pretty generic and the impact is negligible, but as horror filler goes, it's certain not the worst film.
