Everto is a gripping supernatural thriller written and directed by Chris Fretts. The film follows the story of two estranged sisters, Erica (Alessandra Spoletini) and Heather (Allison Schuette), who are brought together by the mysterious disappearance of Erica's son, Daniel. Jonathan Schneider plays the role of a detective, who tries to unravel the bizarre happenings in the small town.

The backdrop of the movie is the picturesque small town of Everto, nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains. The opening sequence sets the tone of the film with a dark, eerie and atmospheric forest accompanied by an eerie soundtrack that sends shivers down the spine. The stunning cinematography captures the stark beauty of the place, and the autumn hues of the forest add to the eerie ambiance.

Erica, a single mother, has brought up her son Daniel (C.J. Valleroy) all by herself. She is struggling to make ends meet and is on the verge of losing her job. Heather, her elder sister, had left the town years ago and did not maintain contact with her family. But when Erica needs help, the sisters come together.

As the search for Daniel begins, the story takes a dark turn. The investigation touches on the esoteric practices of the few locals, who are rumored to be vampires. The film uses an innovative take on the vampire lore, which adds a new dimension to the genre.

The characters are well etched, and the actors deliver superb performances. Alessandra Spoletini, who plays Erica, shows a wide range of emotions, from vulnerable to fierce. Allison Schuette as Heather is excellent, and one can feel the tension between the sisters. Jonathan Schneider, who plays the role of Detective Parker, shows a controlled performance throughout the film. The supporting cast of the townspeople add to the mystery, making Everto a captivating watch.

While the central theme of the movie is the mystery surrounding the disappearance of Erica's son, the movie also touches on the themes of family, love, sacrifice, and redemption. The sisters have had a difficult past, and it's interesting to see how their relationship evolves throughout the film.

Everto is a horror movie but is not entirely grotesque. It's a film that skillfully blends suspense, horror, and drama in equal measure. The director establishes and maintains a tense atmosphere throughout the film, and the imaginative storyline will keep the viewers on edge. The climax is a satisfying one and offers a few surprises.

The production design of the movie is noteworthy. The town of Everto looks lived-in, and there's a sense of history in every nook and corner. The interiors of the houses, too, have been done up to perfection. The sound design of the movie complements the visuals, adding to the tension.

Everto is not a movie for the faint-hearted. The film has its moments of gore and the occasional jump scare. The horror, however, is not gratuitous, and the director skillfully builds up the suspense before revealing anything.

To conclude, Everto is an engaging and well-made supernatural horror movie that is worth watching. The well-rounded characters, the innovative take on the vampire lore, the beautiful cinematography, and the eerie atmosphere make this an excellent film that will appeal to fans of the horror genre.
