Did You Know?


Right after Carter outlines the history of the house, and her methods of hunting ghosts, there are 2 creature type whining sound effects during the scene change. These sounds are taken from the game Populous: The Beginning. Specifically, they are the sound effects used to signify the conjuring of the games Angel of Death. See more »


The house was supposed to have been untouched since 1982. There are various fixtures of the house that would not have been in existence in that year. Most obviously the light switches and power outlets. They are much more modern. See more »

Haven't been this creeped out in a while.
12 August 2008 | by See all my reviews

Here's the story: A woman has brutally killed her family at home. The guy that just inherited the house is a little spooked by all the ghost stories, and wants it checked out. So he hires Carter Simms, a sort of ghost documentarian, to spend a few days in the house and gather evidence.

Sounds pretty ho-hum, huh? It isn't. This film gave me the willies. It's relatively low-budget - shot on video, and the first little bit of the film makes you think 'how can this be any good?' But trust me, this film had me seeing things in the shadows at the end of the hall before it was half over. NOT a film to watch alone at night in the suburbs. There's lots of 'little bits' of gore, and some absolutely unnerving ghost stuff. (I've got goosebumps just thinking about it).

This is a very well crafted film. As I said earlier, it's not big budget, but clearly everyone involved is VERY good at what they do. Good direction, cinematography and editing. The makeup and effects were top notch. Of special note, the lead actress (Patti Tindall) was excellent and super watchable. I hope we see more of her in the future. The rest of the cast were good as well, but the lead really gave the film depth and weight that made it that much more terrifying to watch.
