Years it has waited, now someone’s moved in. Through the eyes of the evil within we witness a broken family desperately seeking a new beginning, in a new home, but this house lives, watches and wants them to stay – forever…

[May contain spoilers] Reviews:

“Visually, it’s an underlit murk of a movie with a sound mix — voices lost behind as assaultive, shrieking score — to match. The dialogue is unquotably drab, the performances not remotely alarming enough to get by.” Movie Nation

“The entire movie is set up to have a big dad related reveal of the monster lurking behind the vents, or even worse, the life force pumping out from the basement wall. This reveal would be the only redemption to the movie but instead, its obscurity made the entire dad plotline (one of the main plot lines) completely irrelevant. Visually, Behind the Walls is dingy and washed out.” Nightmarish Conjurings
