After witnessing the brutal assassination of presidential candidate Francis Mohan, a young married couple (Edward and Alice Anderson) are taken to a safe house miles from civilization. The Anderson's bodyguard (F.B.I. Special Agent Simmons) escorts the couple to safety through a dark and stormy night, trying his best to assure the frightened newlyweds they have nothing to fear while he's on watch. But upon their arrival at the safe house, the trio is shocked to find it abandoned and their stay takes a sudden turn for the worse. Simmons begins undergoing dark and unsettling changes to his personality. Alice begins seeing visions of murder and suspects the agent has been possessed by the spirit of a madman who slaughtered his family in the same house fifty years ago. When she tells Edward they must leave or else be destroyed by Simmons, he disbelieves her and thinks she is losing her mind. Trapped in the middle of nowhere and fearing for her life, Alice Anderson must confront her ... Written by Gideon I. McLevi

Slow-moving and tedious, with little to redeem it.
28 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I can take a good slow-paced horror film with no problem as long as there is some plot point being developed or some character being studied, but this one is just a complete yawner. Did you ever stay up really late as a kid to catch some rare scare film on a late show and then kept nodding off trying to watch it? Well, this will make you do that even if you watch it in the early afternoon. The concept could have been promising with more development, more characters involved and in danger, and if it had been less cerebral and more visceral, but alas it was not, and so it is one that I will purge from my nice collection of Christmas-themed horror films, sadly. I suggest you do not see it unless you need a cure for insomnia, or if you do want to see the attractive leading lady who should be doing better things.
