As his father, Jack Sr.(played Tony-award winning Joe Mantegna), lays dying, he asks his only son to preserve the family estate, and to never tear it down. The pact is made, but within a year, the cocky young music producer, demolishes the estate and builds his "party palace". On the night of Jack's house warming party, friends and family party into the early morning, unaware of the "monstrous spirit" who returns to murder them one-by-one, until only his grandson is left to destroy. GRANDPA JACK takes human form and systematically executes the "guests". Having to do battle with the demon, Jack's own memories emerge that have been haunting him for years in nightmares. On one fateful night 23 years ago, three year old Jack Jr. witnessed the gruesome murder of his own mother, Hannah, at the hands of his own grandfather. Having buried the event inside his head, and told over and over that his ... Written by Anonymous

very bad amateurish movie
14 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

everything about this film is cheap and low budget. the plot is confusing and incoherent. there's continuous poorly-done flashbacks in black and white that keep repeating again and again and do nothing to further the story-if anything they just confuse it more. the audio is tinny and sounds as if it was recorded with a cell phone. the songs are just horrible. the acting is a joke-even by the known 'stars' in it. it's one of those straight to DVD films that feels like it was made in one night. there's so many better indie horror films out there that can at least achieve the bare minimum requirements of what you would see on a television show. avoid at all costs.
