This movie is certainly not what I expected. As someone else wrote on this site, you expect to see a horror/thriller movie like The Haunting or The Others. This is not the case, the movie is nothing more than a classic good guys/bad guy thriller. There is nothing new or fresh about this movie, you do not have to watch very much of it before you can guess the plot. The scenes, that are supposed to be scary, are not at all, because they have been done so many times before. The cast and the acting is OK. Dennis Quaid is great, except maybe saying "Oh my God" too many times. He could have easily handled a much more demanding part. The same thing can be said about Stephen Dorff. Sharon Stone though does not seem to be trying very hard. Juliette Lewis is great as Dale Massies' sexy girlfriend, but my question is: what is she doing here? She is not important to the story and does nothing more than look and act sexy. Maybe they cast her to give the audience something interesting to look at.
A family relocates from the city to a dilapidated house in the country that was once a grand estate. As they begin renovations, they discover their new home harbors a secret and may not be completely free of its former inhabitant.
