After a family moves into an old Victorian home, they discover a chest in the attic containing antiques tainted by a malevolent spirit. As the antiques slowly possess each family member, the spirit grows stronger, hellbent on kidnapping the children.
This is one of the worst movies I've ever seen. There is no plot, no reason for this movie to even exist. It's not scary in any sense--no jump scares, no gross-outs, no psychological terror, nothing. Meaningless scenes come one after another with no reference to anything we're supposed to care about in the movie. Different shots of the same scene are sometimes so poorly edited that you see a character doing the same movement twice, unintentionally. And the summary that's given about possessed items in the attic is based on a huge inconsistency, and it's not intentional.
And it's hard to care about ANY of the characters when they are this bad. We don't get a backstory on any of them. There aren't dramatic pauses when there should be, just stone-faced actors hurriedly rambling off lines to end the scene. The lines are so forced, it's as if all these people hated each other and were trying not to vomit.
The only scary thing about this movie is that it was actually released. I know there's a niche for intentionally bad movies, like Sharknado and Birdemic and anything with Danny Bonnaduche.But this isn't intentionally bad, it's just annoying.
I've seen better movies on RiffTrax/MST3K. They'd have a field day with this garbage.
