Dark Circles

Synopsis: Haunted house film about a pair of sleep deprived parents who begin to experience disturbing visions after moving from the city to a country estate. Alex and Penny have just become parents of a baby boy when they decide that the city is no place to raise a child. Relocating to a farmhouse, the couple finds their relationship deteriorating due to the demands of caring for a newborn, including a lack of sleep. When Alex and Penny begin seeing a mysterious woman around the house, they at first dismiss the sightings as hallucinations brought on by sleep deprivation. But as the visions appear more often, the parents are forced to consider that evils are at work in their home. By the time the truth about their new home is revealed, their tenuous grip on sanity has already begun to slip.

because he went for it.

I just think we have to do it.

It's such a steal.

We'd be crazy to pass this up.

And I really believe

I can turn it into something spectacular.

Anyway, I'll grab something from Carmines

on the way home.

We can start hammering it out.

I just wanna make sure

you're okay with this.

If you're having any doubts at all,

just let me know. Okay?

I love you so much.

Well, it looks a little dreary

in the late months.

But you know, in the spring with plants,

trees, I mean, it's gonna...

We could just paint it, paint the brick.

It's from Michael.

"May this beautiful tree

represent your growing love

"and blooming hopes, and blah, blah, blah."

- Does it really say, "Blah, blah, blah"?

- Yeah.


Hi, buddy.

You just hangin' out?

Oh, yeah.

Inspired yet?

There's something I don't mind

being left behind.

Yeah, just something else

we couldn't have in the city.

How would you like your rib-eye cooked?

I'm sorry. You okay?

I'm sorry. I'm sorry.

Get rid of that thing.

Well, now everything we cook's

gonna taste like baby.

That's not funny.

That's in the kitchen.

Out back. And this one goes upstairs.

Hey, hold on! Hold on!

I'll... I'll help you with that.

Here, I'll get the door.

You've gotta be kidding me.

This was... This was supposed to be gone.

Can your guys get this shit outta here?

No, no, no.

You gotta arrange for a junk man.

I cannot put my piano

in there with this stuff.

So what, just leave it here on the ground?

What is all this crap?


How's little T?

He's good. He's napping.

Can I give you a hand with anything?

No, but maybe later

you could help me with the monitor?


Poor girl.

Probably wondering

what she did to deserve this.

A lot of crap in here.
