Made for less than $11,000 by first time director Oren Peli, the flick tells of a young, middle class couple who moves into what seems like a typical suburban “starter” tract house only to discover a disturbing presence already occupies the dwelling.

It’ll screen Monday October 26th, 7pm. You can purchase tickets here.
