Haunting Ghost Story with Terrifying Performances by Cathy Moriarity & Heather Aitken
27 March 2015 | by beaitkenSee all my reviews

A Cry From Within is a Hitchcokian Haunted House thriller with which is Tentpoled by an amazing comeback performance by Cathy Moriarity and a truly frightening performance by LA Idie actress Heather Aitken as Cathy's character age 26. Heather is a dead ringer for the young Cathy and the camera loves them both. The script by Deb Twiss is terrific. Anyone over the age of 10 can see this film (one horrifying scene is inappropriate for younger kids). This is not a slasher film but is really scary. Eric Roberts finally is given a chance to play a charming lead and the chemistry between Deb Twiss and him is palpable. Veterans Robert Vaughn, James McCaffrey, and Eliza Roberts are effective although McCaffrey goes a bit over the top in the finale.Judy Beecher is fine as the (old) mother. Zach Miller, a first time feature director does well. Deb Twiss' daughter, Sydney McCann, is fine in a focal role and her son, Jatthew McCann, although acting with charm is given little to do. Go see or rent this film if you liked the 1963 version of The Haunting.
