Possession is nine tenths of the law. Tina Martin, a real estate agent, prepares to show an empty house she's just listed; the client, Alison Labatte, arrives on time and the tour begins. While Tina is peppy and upbeat, Alison is brittle; soon it's she, not Tina, talking about the place: it had been the dream house of a young couple in love; the husband had an accident and died after months of costly medical attention; the bank repossessed the house, and the sheriff came to evict the wife. All this is news to Tina, and when Alison suddenly disappears, the unnerved agent goes in search, room by room. Is Alison gone or has she decided to hang around? Written by

The noose around Alison's neck in the bathroom scene is not tightened (the knot is several inches from her neck, and there is space in the loop), making it unlikely to be a successful method of suicide. In the longer shots, Alison appears to be suspended about three feet below the shower curtain rod, yet the cutaways show her feet to be dangling a foot or two off the floor. Even if the curtain rod were affixed eight feet above the floor, she would have to be no more than three or four feet tall to be suspended in this way, yet she appears elsewhere in the film to be slightly taller than Tina, who is of normal height.
