At the house, unnerving things start happening and Jill starts "seeing" things. Her friends become concerned about her sanity, leaving Jill feeling even more isolated and under the spell of the force in the house.

Did You Know?


When the "Family Bible" is opened, they find that several sections have been marked by the former owner due to their importance to her. The first page has a sentence marked in red. It appears that a red pencil was used to highlight the biblical phrase so she could find it more easily in the future. If we assume that red pencils were in existence in the 1800s, then this is plausible. But, when they refer to the next two sections that the Bible's owner highlighted, we see that the sections are no longer highlighted in red pencil. Instead, the prop manager has allowed certain sections of the bible to be typed in red, rather than the usual black ink. It is obvious that the pages were typed on a computer, with the pertinent phrases allowed to stand out with red ink. It is impossible for an original family bible that was over 100 years old to have only the phrases of interest to the owner typed in red ink. See more »

Terrible movie
9 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The acting was extremely wooden, with the female lead using her disability as an excuse to stand perfectly still and not act. The male lead's only memorable line out of the entire movie is "What?" (repeated often), coming up only second to his memorable portrayal of the line "Huh?"

The stage dressing was also extremely odd, with rooms in the same house having wildly different furnishings, from extremely ornate with hardwood floors in one room to cheap carpeting and blinds in the next. Lighting was also terrible, as it looks like they tried shooting some shots in an actual house, and blue-tinted day to look like night.

With that said, both my wife and I love to watch terrible movies to point out how awful it is, and this movie did not disappoint. Will recommend to internet movie reviewers for many lulz.
