Trivia

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 »

Goofs

When Carter arrives at the Masterson house, her rear license plate is one of Oregon, although it is seen in the beginning that she is from California. See more »

Don't Waste Your Time
26 December 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really cannot understand why anyone would want to watch this movie anywhere other than in a college film class as an example of how not to make a movie. The first ten minutes are nothing but narration. Even when characters are conversing, we are still told what they are saying instead of getting the information first hand. This continues throughout the movie.

My biggest problem is that everything lacks authenticity. The actors generally sound like they're reading from cue cards while improvising emotion. The editing jumps around. The story is also really bland. Shows like Ghost Adventures and A Haunting can tell stories like this in 60 minutes with commercials, so you can imagine how they try to stretch things out in this movie.

I think the only people who find this movie scary are people who scare too easily. Better suggestions: Poltergeist, Paranormal Activity, A Haunting in Connecticut.
