‘Some doors, once opened can never be closed again’

We Go On is a 2016 American paranormal horror feature film written, edited and directed by Jesse Holland (The Crooked Man; Chilling Visions: 5 Senses of FearYellowBrickRoad) and Andy Mitton (The Vermont HouseChilling Visions: 5 Senses of FearYellowBrickRoad). The movie stars Clark Freeman, Annette O’Toole (It; Cat People) and John Glover (Gremlins 2).


Paralyzed by his fear of dying, Miles Grissom (Clark Freeman) offers reward money to the first person who can show him a ghost, an angel, a demon – anything to prove to him that we go on after our deaths.


Miles narrows the responses down to three viable candidates – a scientist, a medium, and a worldly entrepreneur. And along with his protective mother, he embarks on an adventure through Los Angeles that will spiral into an unthinkable nightmare…

In the US, the film was released on Blu-ray/DVD on April 4, 2017, by Lightyear Entertainment. A British DVD release is due on 31st July 2017, via Network.

” …We Go On provokes both admiration and some annoyance with its meandering, occasionally cryptic storytelling […] though O’Toole, creating a fully rounded, relatable character despite some implausible writing, does much to keep the proceedings psychologically grounded.” Variety

“Cuts during conversations don’t necessarily occur when dialogue shifts to another character. Each shot allows tone to settle first, establishing the desired note before moving on. Mitton and Holland have a confident handle on creating a deliberate rhythm, and that ability polishes their atmosphere with precision that few independent films can match.” Culture Crypt


“It’s great to see a ghost hunting film that isn’t just a bunch of film students running around an abandoned asylum. It’s a film where the character actually has motivation and purpose for the ghost hunting. Miles is a sympathetic character rather than a pitiable one which makes all the difference, you’re along for the journey, his quest into the paranormal.” UK Horror Scene

We Go On takes you in several directions and each one is satisfying. There is a lot of creeping horror and plenty of authentic ghost story elements to go around. I really found myself enjoying the fact that those elements were all intertwined with family bonds, love and an interesting look at the afterlife.” iHorror.com

“From start to finish, in every regard, We Go On completely delivers. This is yet another spooky, profound, and clever horror hit for the Yellowbrickroad team, and further proof that Mitton and Holland are one of the most underrated duos in the filmmaking world today.” Cinema Slasher

“Both contemplative and uncompromising in the way it depicts interactions between the living and the dead, We Go On is also very assured in its craft. The filmmakers make strong use of unfamiliar LA locations, and their attention to sound design (with Mitton himself providing the score) is as creepily effective as it was in Yellowbrickroad.” Rue Morgue
