Unoriginal and pointless horror flick
26 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie borrows a lot from Poltergeist in some ways, and every other haunted house movie.

A couple and their daughter move into a haunted house in Ireland and some weird stuff starts happening. The special effects crew must have been really proud of their invisible wolf thing since they show it about 20 times including right at the end.

Anyway, the evil ghosts of the evil house take their daughter away, and they get her back, but the wife all of a sudden is possessed and starts having delusions of her husband cheating on her. So he kicks him out and goes pyscho and is about to kill their daughter with a butchers knife when the husband comes back and saves them both, by impaling the wife with a sacred knife (after which she gets up like nothing happened despite the fact she just got 4 inches of steel put into her chest).

The only entertaining thing in this movie was seeing Alexandra Paul (from Baywatch) looking and acting like a psychotic killer, it was really pretty funny.

The laughable fire effects of the burning house was also amusing, as well as the already mentioned invisible wolf thing.

I seem to be commenting a lot on crappy movies that are played midday or late at night, because that's better than doing it for box office hits which everyone can easily get an opinion on.
