CASSADAGA tells the story of Lily Morel (Kelen Coleman), a post-lingually deaf artist, who participates in a sťance in the spiritualist community of Cassadaga. But instead of getting closure with her recently departed sister, Lily contacts the vengeful ghost of a murdered woman. As the ghost becomes increasingly angry and violent, Lily rushes to unravel the mysterious circumstances surrounding the woman's death - a task that will bring her face-to-face with a sadistic serial killer who turns his victims into human marionette dolls.(C) Archstone

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"This eager film piles on common fears: evil puppetry, haunted homes and overly generous hosts. So despite a sloppy and humorless execution, it is scary by association."
‑ Miriam Bale, New York Times
"Attempts to leverage the horror genre in the service of inducing epiphanies, but keeps tripping over its confused tangle of genres."
‑ Chris Packham, Village Voice
"Cassadaga is so close to being hauntingly endearing, but an overly "Hallmark" feel and laughable serial killer destroy any excitement or pleasure genre fans might be teased with."
‑ Matt Donato, We Got This Covered
"...cribs equally from "Ghost Whisperer"-like spiritual melodrama, ghostly mystery, and grisly torture porn."
‑ William Goss, The Dissolve
""Cassadaga" tries to scoop up enough tropes to satisfy a wide range of potential fright fans but lacks the cohesion to ever truly be effective."
‑ Robert Abele, Los Angeles Times
"A hodge-podge of horror tropes that frequently congeals into something fun."
‑ Scott Weinberg, FEARnet
"Cassadaga flirts with conventions of both paranormal horror films and more traditional serial killer thrillers, but is marked by listless characters and indistinct dialogue."
‑ Brent Simon, Shared Darkness
"This silly throwback to the post-'Psycho' shockers of the '60s offers a sluggish giallo-like murder mystery spiked with grotesque sadism."
‑ Dennis Harvey, Variety
"Watching the opening moments of the new independent horror movie 'Cassadaga,' you might be forgiven for assuming the word is medical jargon for "self-administered impulse penectomy.'"
‑ John Beifuss, Commercial Appeal (Memphis, TN)
"Anthony DiBlasi's "Cassadaga" is the state of the art in horror movie storytelling, and the state of the art is horrendous."
‑ Steven Boone,
