Plus, there are some houses that the bank has foreclosed on. That means someone ran out of money and so the bank can sell it at a really cheap price.

I don't understand why this is underrated, because I was entertained. Dennis Quaid is always excellent, and raises this film alone by his presence, and Sharon Stone is a very good actress come a decent story. Stephen Dorf is a actor I always want to see more of, any fans of Blade, take note, Dorf is on form here.
This is a very atmospheric film, creepy in the tension. It doesn't excel over the best horror films on someones list, it's not looking to be something different, but in its execution for what it is, it can be entertainment. I'm a fan of Dennis Quaid, Stephen Dorf and Sharon Stone, so this is a major plus for me.
