A cloud of menace hangs over Mona Fastvold’s slow-build thriller about a pair of estranged half sisters who reconnect years after a childhood tragedy only to inflict psychological damage on each other. Kaia (Gitte Witt) and her boyfriend (Christopher Abbott, from Girls) are restoring the family’s fire-damaged home in the sticks when her pregnant sister (Stephanie Ellis) shows up to exhume the past, stir up trouble, and freak everyone out with her sleepwalking. The setup has mysterious promise, but the film cheaps out on a satisfying payoff. C+
