Within is a 2016 horror movie that follows a family who moves into a new home in the suburbs. The family consists of John (played by Michael Vartan), his wife, Melanie (played by Nadine Velazquez), and their teenage daughter, Hannah (played by Erin Moriarty). John is an architect who designed the house himself, and the family is excited to start their new life there.

However, soon after they move in, strange things begin to happen. Hannah starts hearing strange noises in her room at night, and her belongings begin to move around on their own. Melanie starts experiencing weird hallucinations, and John notices odd occurrences with the electrical system in the house.

As the family tries to figure out what is happening, they discover that their new home may have a dark history. They learn that the previous owners had a young daughter who died under mysterious circumstances, and they begin to suspect that her ghost may be haunting the house.

As the paranormal activity intensifies, the family struggles to keep their sanity and stay alive. They turn to a local priest for help, but he is unable to rid the house of its evil spirits. Finally, they turn to a psychic who specializes in exorcisms, and she helps them uncover the dark secrets that the house has been hiding.

The cast of Within delivers solid performances, particularly Michael Vartan as the skeptical but loving husband and father. Erin Moriarty also shines as the teenage daughter caught in the middle of the terror. Nadine Velazquez's portrayal of Melanie, the mother struggling with her mental health, is also commendable.

The cinematography and special effects in Within are well-done, and director Phil Claydon does a good job at building tension throughout the film. There are plenty of jump scares that will keep viewers on the edge of their seat.

However, the script falls short in some areas. The plot is predictable and relies heavily on cliches from the horror genre. The characters are underdeveloped, and the story doesn't offer much insight into their motivations or backstory. The ending also feels rushed and unsatisfying.

Overall, Within is a decent horror movie that will entertain fans of the genre. While it doesn't break any new ground, it offers enough scares and suspense to keep viewers engaged. Despite its flaws, it's worth a watch for those looking for a spooky movie night.

Within is a 2016 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 28 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 5.1.
