When the Campbell family moves to upstate Connecticut, they soon learn that their charming Victorian home has a disturbing history: not only was the house a transformed funeral parlor where inconceivable acts occurred, but the owner's clairvoyant son Jonah served as a demonic messenger, providing a gateway for spiritual entities to crossover.Written by

An unrated version has been released on DVD which runs 10 minutes longer than the PG-13 Theatrical Version (92mins) and also runs the same length as the version approved in the UK by the BBFC at 102mins. 98% of the changes relate on different color schemes of individual takes - partly only frame-short - as well as alternative material. The supernatural appearances are mainly in monochrome but colored in the unrated version. Many things can only be recognized in single frame mode or while watching entirely close. See more »
With their teenage son undergoing cancer treatment the Campbell family move into a creepy Victorian mansion nearer to the hospital in order to cut down on the travelling. Soon creepy things start to happen. In fact lots of spooky things happen, too much & too soon in the movie. Sadly this means any scare factor soon loses it's power & it becomes somewhat cliché & predictable. Acting & special effects are reasonable. One of the highlights is the revelation of many corpses inside the house.
There is much variation in reviews for this film on here, but to rate it 1/10 is as ludicrous as awarding it 10/10. As haunted house movies go it is reasonably good but certainly not a classic.
