What's that Smell?
6 May 2003 | by suspiria10See all my reviews

Many Years after his father and sister die in a horrible car crash, a man brings his new wife and child to live in his first home. Before long his daughter starts to exhibit strange behavior due to the curse of her dead aunt. This barely passable fare is lacking in about every area imaginable. Its' amazing that it took three writers to come up with a script as mundane as this. The dialogue is pretty bad. The acting is nothing special (Especially the wife.bleh!) The direction is ok and the music is bearable. If you have a craving for cheese look no further. If you want a good movie get the Exorcist and leave this one alone. 4 / 10
