They Come Back is a supernatural thriller movie that was released in 2007. The movie, directed by Peter Svatek, revolves around a family that is haunted by their deceased teenage daughter. The story takes place in a small town and follows the lives of Amy Norton (Mia Kirshner) and her husband, Ben (Jonathan Watton), who lost their daughter, Karen (Niamh Wilson), years ago. Karen was a troubled teenager who committed suicide, and her parents were left with unresolved guilt and sadness.

One day, the family is surprised when Karen returns from the dead, seemingly unharmed and unaware of her death. Karen acts as though nothing has changed and resumes her place in the family, but her parents are skeptical of her return, and Amy fears that her daughter's presence may somehow be related to an old legend about the town, which tells of a young girl who returns from the dead to haunt her family.

As the days progress, Karen's presence in the family becomes stronger, and her parents become more and more disturbed by her unnatural behavior. Ben enlists the help of a paranormal investigator, but he is dismissed as a charlatan. Amy also seeks help from a psychic, who confirms her worst fears – that Karen may not be who she claims to be.

The family's lives unravel as they try to uncover the truth behind Karen's return, and they begin to question their own sanity as they struggle to come to terms with the fact that their daughter is dead and has come back from the grave.

As the story reaches its climax, the truth is revealed, and the family must come to grips with the consequences of their actions. The movie deals with themes of loss, grief, and the supernatural and offers a unique perspective on the idea of the afterlife.

Mia Kirshner delivers a heart-wrenching performance as the grieving mother, while Jonathan Watton portrays the skeptical father with a great deal of conviction. Niamh Wilson's portrayal of the mysterious Karen is flawless, and she manages to capture the essence of a girl caught between life and death.

The cinematography is exceptional, capturing the eerie mood of the small town and the equally eerie presence of Karen. The haunting soundtrack complements the movie's atmosphere, adding to the tension and suspense.

Overall, They Come Back is a must-watch for fans of the supernatural and psychological thrillers. The movie offers a fresh take on the idea of the afterlife and deals with difficult themes in a sensitive and thought-provoking manner. The ending is both satisfying and unexpected, making for a memorable viewing experience.
