Storyline

Jill (Brianne Davis), a girl angry about being blind and struggling with her faith, unexpectedly inherits an old mansion from her estranged aunt (Janice Knickrehm, "Halloween 6"). She and her friends go there to check it out. On the way they have a strange encounter with the creepy Hank (Ezra Buzzington, "The Hills Have Eyes"). 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. But when Jill disappears, it's too late for her friends to stop what is already in motion. The ghost that brought Jill to the house and a soldier from the past (C. Thomas Howell) are going to reveal their secret, forcing Jill to face her greatest fears, changing her forever. Written by Anonymous

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 »

It Gave Me Chills
6 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

"The Haunting Of Marsten Manor" is an enjoyable movie. I saw this film at a film festival and again when it came to theaters. It's a film people of all ages will enjoy.

It's a supernatural thriller with redeeming values. It has a lot of twists and turns I didn't expect, that I enjoyed a lot. I got chills many times during the movie!

The 3 main actors did a great job as well as the ghost (Julie Sapp) and the soldier (C. Thomas Howell).

C.Thomas Howell adds a lot to the film. I've loved him since "The Outsiders"!

I think the writers are talented and are a great duo. This is actually the first film for the filmmakers. I'm really looking forward to seeing more of their films.

You leave the movie feeling happy that you saw it. Find it and see it!
