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.

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

"Hollywood Video...can I have my money back?"
3 December 2004 | by (Florida) – See all my reviews

Cheap, cheap, cheap, cheap, cheap...*sigh* this is a beyond low budget low budget film. My guess is they only had about $50 spending cash and used it all on the effects, which wouldn't surprise me because of how terribly moronic they were. I think, out of the whole film, only one effect stood out as almost decent: The scene where the small wooden horse coming to life and walks across the table...sad, I know. The other reason (besides that one decent effect) why I decided to give this a 2 instead of a 1 were because of the small amount of surprise scenes that actually did what they were supposed to do...surprise you. Of course, those were too far and few between. Overall this movie was extremely slow paced, with a load of cliché's bad directors use to make shitty horror films (if you could even call this horror...more like borer *yawn*) Vince Di Meglio must have had a fascination with the "stare at each other or over your shoulder at each other" cliché because pretty much that was the only interaction between characters...obviously not providing enough character buildup so that you can feel sorry for them and not want them to die. I wanted everyone to die in this crapfest...well...maybe not the leading lady...OK yeah including the leading lady. Don't watch this I warn you! Only watch it if you have a liking for movies with really bad effects and actors. 2/10
