Bamboozled

Greg owes his girlfriend, Amy, a favor. It’s time to clear out the home of her deceased grandparents: a dilapidated villa consumed by creeping ivy and the passage of time. But an unseen presence in the house wants to play a violent game with him. One of blood splatter, disappearance, and cardboard boxes.
