Storyline

After the mysterious death of his Aunt, a confirmed skeptic lawyer, Bryan Becket, dismisses reports that his Aunt's house is haunted and moves in. Immediately occurrences begin he cannot explain. And beyond the occurrences there is something about the house which gnaws at Becket - some strange connection he senses he has with the house's past. Soon, the haunting turns personal, he hears voices suggesting clues to a deep mystery. He questions his sanity, seeks medical help, but instead finds assistance in a young psychic who immediately declares, "There's a very bad secret in this house." Together they embark on a terrifying journey to uncover the secret - a journey which leads them deep into the recesses of The Skeptic's own troubled mind. Written by Mary-Beth Taylor

Goofs

When Bryan (Daly) goes down to the wine cellar and gets a bottle of wine (at about 45 min. mark), it appears to be a brown bottle with a white label. It looks the same when the scene shifts to him trying to open the trunk. But a few moments later, when the scene shifts to him sitting at the table eating, with the bottle of wine quite obvious, talking about "what's in the trunk"...the wine bottle is green with an obviously colorful label.

Skip It!
1 November 2011 | by dbwillifordSee all my reviews

For those of you that caught Tim Daly in the NBC hit Wings or in his role as the leader of the Branch Davidians in the made for TV movie of the week; do yourself a favor with your hour and twenty minutes of free time.... SKIP THIS PIECE OF HORSE BLEEP. Tom Arnold and the chick from Avatar are the lone bright spots in this horrible production. IFC should've never green lit this film.

But of course if you are into predictable plot lines and shaky dialogue, then by all means this is the film for you. It also casts the guy from Richie Rich (they same dude that was the Dad in Gilmore Girls) yeah that guy as some Doctor who does stuff but doesn't reveal to Daly about other stuff and well you get the point.

SKIP IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
