There’s something about the piano that’s inherently creepy. Maybe it’s the dark, enclosed space that the sounds emanate from in the behemoth instrument or how even the slightest out of tune note can conjure up strange feelings and bad vibes. And a playing the piano alone, in an isolated house, with no means to contact the outside world? We could never.
The latter is essentially the plot of Amber’s Descent, a supernatural thriller where a piano and its player are a central character. Supernatural‘s Kayla Stanton plays Amber Waltz, a musically named pianist with a troubled past who retreats to a rural farmhouse to work on her latest project. But she’s not alone with her music. Soon a local handyman (Michael Mitton) with knowledge of the old house and some uninvited guests transpose her creative retreat into a deadly concerto.
