Keira Woods' (Elisha Cuthbert) daughter mysteriously vanishes in the cellar of their new house. She soon discovers there is an ancient and powerful entity controlling their home that she will have to face or risk losing her family's souls forever.

'The Cellar' tells the story of Keira and Brian Woods who get what seems like the perfect home for almost nothing. But when their teenage daughter Ellie and her younger brother Steven stumble upon an old Gramophone strange things begin to happen including the disappearance of their daughter when she visits the cellar. Keira must try to figure out what the strange symbols above every doorway in the large home mean in order to save her daughter and get the family out of the house alive.

'The Cellar" was written and directed by, Brendan Muldowney and although it isn't a film you are likely to remember it is still an entertaining ride into hell and back. It is a film you have to follow closely so as not to miss any of the vital information that is given to Keira as she looks to fin a way to rescue her daughter.

The cast were all very good in their roles including Elisha Cuthbert as the mother. The effects used in the film are very good considering the budget they had to work with. The film has a few jump scares but besides those I didn't find it scary at all but I thought it had a good amount of suspense and mystery that will keep you interested all the way to the end.

'The Cellar' will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray June 21, 2022 with Special Features that include:

Interviews with The Cellar Cast & Crew

The Cellar VFX Before & After
