Above average Lifetime Channel ghost story, 30 October 2013
Author: GL84 from Los Angeles, Ca

After adopting a little girl through nefarious means, a couple start to believe her attachment to her real mother might mean that her spirit is the cause of a series of supernatural attacks that they have to discover the cause of to keep their new daughter alive.

This was an absolutely enjoyable Lifetime effort that really has a lot going for it. One of the better additions to this one is the fact that the ghost here is actually a credible threat throughout and actually has some rather impacting moments on the film. Starting with the rather tame appearances before graduating to themes such as flat-out possession, body manipulation, control over the outside world and even managing to take on hauntings at several locations at the same time means that this is a rather credible threat rather than something that just happens to have a ghost involved but never really gets to do anything since it appears so sporadically. However, here it not only gets to interfere in the daily life of the family and cause a lot of mayhem, for lack of a better term in such a movie, it also manages to interact far more often without really loosing the fear. This is helpful in the later half where the ghostly hauntings becomes far more physical where they attack using items around the room with ghostly voices and ethereal light bouncing around which sounds ludicrous in many ways but actually holds together far better than expected. With a few too many plot lines that seem perfectly suited to such a platform including the step-mom's relationship with her own mother as well as the attempt at inter-family discord that drives the plodding mid-section, there's times where the horror becomes secondary which makes for a little jerking pace as it's set-up with the horror at the beginning through her mysterious arrival and quirky behavior, gets dropped for lame family squabbles and picks up again at the end with the exorcism and final battle. That said, all-in-all this was quite enjoyable.
