What they say: After a couple’s efforts to conceive continually end in disappointment they adopt a young boy whose mother has died. He seems drawn to a tree in the couple’s backyard, constantly climbing and drawing pictures of it. But when his new mother finally manages to become pregnant the boy disappears, and a number of strange occurrences–and dead bodies–pile up, all seemingly centered on the mysterious tree.
What I say: Palisades Tartan has attempted to pull a bit of a fast one here. This is a re-release of a film called Acacia that was previously released before Palisades bought Tartan. This is kinda shady in my opinion but it is a decent film despite the “marketing”.
A Korean couple cannot conceive so they adopt. The adopted child hangs out at a tree in the back yard. When the woman becomes pregnant the child vanishes and all sorts of spooky stuff starts happening. The film has good solid atmosphere and can be quite creepy at times. The performances are all very good and the story is well written and engaging.
Is there any bad news? Yeah there is. Since these re-issues started dropping I have noticed a dip in picture quality down from the original release. I’m not sure why this is, but it is distracting. This is the only downer in this release.
