In 1921, England is overwhelmed by the loss and grief of World War I. Hoax exposer Florence Cathcart visits a boarding school to explain sightings of a child ghost. Everything she believes unravels as the 'missing' begin to show themselves.
Some say that all houses have memories. For one man, his home is the place he would kill to forget. A family unknowingly moves into a home where several grisly murders were committed ... only to find themselves the killer's next target. Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a job in New York City to relocate his wife, Libby (Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the scene of the murder of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from Ann Paterson (Watts), a neighbour who was close to the family that died. As Will and Ann piece together the disturbing puzzle, they discover that the story of the last man to leave Will's dream house will be just as horrifying to the one who came next. Written by

When one of the girls is playing the piano, the song heard is Beethoven's "Für Elise" (For Elise). Her arm movements clearly reveal she is not playing the song. See more »
Alright, now I want to show you something I showed you earlier. From five years ago.

That's not... Peter Ward. That's... that's me.
You lived in this institution for five years, Peter.
No. Um... that's, that's ridiculous. I... I'm not Peter Ward. I'm Will Atenton.
That's the name you gave yourself. W1-1L becomes Will. The numbers 8-10-10 become Atenton. Will Atenton.

One of the worst movies I have seen this year, with plot holes big enough to drive a truck through. Wooden acting from the supporting cast, and it never really knows what genre of film it wants to be. Daniel Craig obviously wanted a quick pay cheque, take the money and run 007, and don't look back. IMDb wants me to type out 10 lines of text but it hardly seems worth it if I have to reference this movie anymore so instead I will just type random sentences until I reach the minimum limit. So, how about this September weather? What a great fall. So nice to finally have decent,warm days. I sure hope the Oilers have a good year this year. Well, I guess I have reached my minimum line amount so I will be signing off. Daniel Craig I want my money back!
