The Quickening (2013)
Rachel and Dan want to go somewhere hot in January.
Recently married and expecting their first baby, they decide on an island in the Caribbean. Why not turn it into a honeymoon, Dan says?
A holiday in paradise. It ought to be perfect. Except that, for Rachel, it's not.
Things take a sinister turn as soon as they arrive.
As furniture shifts and objects fly around, as a waitress begs her to leave and a fellow guest makes her increasingly uneasy, Rachel realises everything she holds most dear is at stake and nothing is quite as it seems...
