Storyline

Four college students looking for a cheap place to live have found what looks to be a dream deal: in exchange for renovating a broken-down old mansion, they will not only get paid for their work, but will also get to live there rent-free. They naturally accept the offer, and quickly move in and get to work. Not so long afterwards, however, strange things start happening to all of them, and it soon becomes clear that they are not alone inside the eerie house. Written by Jean-Marc Rocher <rocher@fiberbit.net>

This movie was so bad it nearly cost me my family
15 November 2002 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I really would like to have a talk with the actors and director, I mean how could they ! what were they thinking ! this movie came across as an insult to B-Movies!. The only reason that you'd complete this movie if you started watching it is pure curiosity. I was wondering if it was meant to be black comedy, but I swear to you it wasn't! avoid at all cost, even if someone gives you the movie for free!
