**Spoilers** Set in the picturesque little town of White Cliffs Maine the movie "Buried Secrets" is about a family tragedy that's kept buried by the surviving father Clay Roff,Tim Matherson,of what happened to his wife Ann, Shelly Cook, and his sixteen year-old daughter Mary, Erika Flores,until it erupts in an emotional explosion at the end of the film.

Being too much for him to take Clay Roff leaves the house that he and his family lived in after he re-married his wife's doctor Denielle, Kelly Rutherford. Renting the house out to Laura Vellum,Melinda Culea, who together with her teenage daughter Annalisse, Tiffani Thiessen, moved into during the summer.

As soon as she was in the Roff House Annalisse began to feel uneasy and spooked out by what she perceived was happening there. Seeing and hearing this young girl and then at night having dreams of a woman falling to her death off a cliff made her feel that something strange and deadly happened there.

The voices become more and more pronounced and the girl becomes visible to only Annalisse as she begins to take over her mind and body in an effort to bring closure to what happened there before Annalisse and her mom moved in. The girl who's haunting the house reveals herself to Annalisse to be the missing daughter of Clay Roff ,Mary, who in fact it turns out died when she took an overdose of sleeping pills and then collapsed and cracked her skull in the water filled bathtub. Mary's father kept this hidden all these years telling the local police that Mary ran away from home.

Mary getting very close with Annalisse about her life in White Cliffs guides her to her former boyfriend Johnny, Channon Roe, who works in the towns car repair shop. Bit by bit the secret of both Mary and her moms death comes to the surface and it turns out that, besides Mary being dead, her mom was murdered.

Better then average ghost story with the ghost, Mary Roff, not at all that mysterious as you would have expected her to be as you begin to notice that she's almost as much made of flesh and blood as those alive in the movie. Mary appears as if she were a live person instead of being a far-away and invisible entity only seen by Annalisse.

The film "Buried Secrets" is also a pretty good murder/mystery with the killer of Ann Roff successfully keeping himself, or herself, hidden from view and from the police until the very end of the movie. It took Mary's strikingly handsome pet black stallion "Midnight", who instinctively knew with his horse sense who the killer was, to track down Ann's murderer and exact final justice.

At he end of the film there's a very touching scene where Annalisse/Mary is reunited with Johnny as he finally realized that she came back from beyond to be with him for the rest of her, Annalisse's, and his life. The theme of the movie should be : "Love Conqures All", even death, in the end.
