As far as horror movies released in the middle of summer go, The Haunting of Helena is pretty good. The story is about a young single mother who is recently divorced who moves into a crumbled old building from after the war in Italy. She has a young daughter with her who she loves but who she doesn't seem to always understand in the way she should. Helena ends up actually falling in love with a piece of furniture in her newly dilapidated home that has a strange carving on it. And soon the demons in the home begin to haunt Helena and take over her life. The film gets a little predictable toward the end and there are lots of holes in the plot, but if you're a fan of this genre you won't mind it so much. If you're tired of all the superhero flicks out there this time of year and you don't want to see the latest disaster starring Adam Sandler, then go for this one.
