A family relocates from the city to a dilapidated house in the country that was once a grand estate. As they begin renovations, they discover their new home harbors a secret and may not be completely free of its former inhabitant.
Wanting to escape city life for the countryside, New Yorkers Cooper Tilson (Quaid), his wife Leah (Stone) and their two children move into a dilapidated old mansion still filled with the possessions of the previous family. Turning it into their dream house soon becomes a living nightmare when the previous owner (Dorff) shows up, and a series of terrifying incidents lead them on a spine-tingling search for clues to the estate's dark and lurid past...

When the Tilson's first explore the grounds, they pass an ancient, rusted-out truck. The chrome on the headlights and the grill of the truck, however, are shiny and glistening. Throughout the opening of the house, we see that the amount of dust and wear are not consistent with other shots. See more »
After watching this movie I was a little bit confused that it has so low marks. I liked the atmosphere and the environment of American countryside with this beautiful house life from a dream. The story line was really nothing special but not bad as well. I could stand it. But the main reason I gave 8 out of 10 is the scenery as I said before.The atmosphere of new - old house you are moving in with all the old stuff and secrets maybe secrets lit in me the attention. Also lately I found myself loving movies from surroundings of American small cities,villages and nature - I don't know why but that is the way it goes in my case. So if you want to see a southern redneck in the action and want almost smell the charms of countryside wilderness do not hesitate.This was good one.
