Bruce Davison in The Manor
The biggest fear for everyone is getting old. People pay a steep price in the aging process and face unfathomable horrors in a senior home in Amazon’s The Manor. Well, mainly something that lurks in the dark.
The film stars Barbara Hershey (Black Swan, Falling Down), Bruce Davison (X-Men, Short Cuts), Nicholas Alexander (Good Girls, Adam), Jill Larsen (All My Children, The Taking of Deborah Logan), Fran Bennett (New Nightmare, 8MM), and Katie Amanda Keane (My Name Is Khan, Parental Indiscretion). Axelle Carolyn (American Horror Story, The Haunting of Bly Manor)wrote and directed this movie.
Here’s the full synopsis:
A malevolent force preys upon the residents of a sleepy nursing home in The Manor, a gothic tale of terror with a modern twist. When a mild stroke diminishes her ability to care for herself, Judith Albright (Barbara Hershey) moves to Golden Sun Manor, an assisted living facility with a sterling reputation. But despite the best efforts of the staff, and a budding friendship with fellow senior Roland (Bruce Davison), strange occurrences and nightmarish visions convince Judith that a sinister presence is haunting the massive estate. As residents begin to die mysteriously, Judith’s frantic warnings are dismissed as fantasy. Even her devoted grandson Josh (Nicholas Alexander) thinks her fears are the result of dementia, not demons. With no one willing to believe her, Judith must either escape the confines of the manor or fall victim to the evil that dwells within it.
