Storyline

The three Naibert children, in their teens and early twenties, inherit a vast estate from their grandmother Rebecca. But unknown to them, the family inheritance has passed from grandmother to granddaughter for centuries-and Rebecca has a long reach from the grave to assure that the line is unbroken. The first weekend in the mansion is a party for the three Naiberts and their friends-but one by one, they vanish without a trace. Is death the punishment for violating Rebecca's spell? Are the demons that beset the young people real-or only reflections of their own fear? Is it murder, violence from another dimension, or madness? The answer lives in the reflections. Written by ray

Goofs

When Ray and Jack are outside looking for the electrical box, they meet up and speak with the butler, Charles, the camera working can be seen on the back windows panning to the left (Charlies: "Miss Naibert has ideas...You better do what she wants" (around an hour into he movie)). It's an interesting goof considering all the mirrors on-screen in the movie. See more »

Just plain dumb
15 October 2011 | by ctomvelu1See all my reviews

I tried! But I couldn't quite make it to the end of this one, for fear of drifting into a deep slumber from which I might never awaken. "The Passing": is about several members of a family who must spend a weekend in their late granny's old house in order to gain their inheritance. Pretty soon, there are a lot of people in the house, as it turns into a party. One by one, people start getting knocked off by an unseen force. There's also a mysterious box whose contents were not meant or human hands. The only interesting aspect of this badly acted and badly written "thriller" was an occasional flash forward to the lone survivor as she tells her tale to a screwy cop (the late Paul Gleason) who figures she did everyone else in. I understand there is a twist at the very end. I was onto other things by then, and missed it. I suspect I did not miss much.
