"Sweet River" - Movie Review! On Video on Demand Today!

NEW horror/thriller SWEET RIVER timed to its theatrical and VOD release on April 23rd.

Directed by Justin McMillan, SWEET RIVER stars Lisa Kay, Eddie Baroo, Martin Sacks, Chris Heywood, Charlotte Stent, Jack Ellis, Jayden McGinlay, Genevieve Lemon, Sam Parsonson, Bryan Probets, Rob Carlton, and Jeremy Waters.

Synopsis: Hana’s search for her son’s body leads her to the sleepy town of Billing, where her investigations uncover more than she expected and threaten to expose the towns secrets... secrets that both the living and the dead will fight to protect.

My review and thoughts:

Hana's son goes missing when she was in the town of Billing. She begins to investigate why she's hearing creepy noises. Then, she sees children run into the field of corn. Her neighbor leads her to believe that she's seeing things and says, "What children?" When in fact, the neighbor knew exactly what Hana was talking about. When Hana's son went missing, there were so many fields to search, that the local police gave up. They didn't want to burn the fields down because it would have meant a loss of crops for locals.

Does Hana find her missing son's remains? Does she solve the mystery of the children in the fields? This isn't a horror movie at all. Not really scary. But a good story overall.
