John and Kathy Burns have finally move from their cramped apartment to a spacious new home. They are delighted, though somewhat mystified, as to why the purchase price is so low. Despite their research and numerous inspections, there are no obvious flaws that they can find with the house. Their "moving day" happens to fall on Halloween, and unpacking is interrupted when six of their friends show up to "christen" the new house. In tow is "Floyd", a "medium" who has been hired to entertain everyone by conducting a "séance". The séance begins as a joke, but ends with guests revealing painful memories of their past. Later that evening, John and Kathy are awakened by a noise, and are shocked to discover that they apparently share their home with a ghost. Floyd is summoned to their home, and a private séance reveals in a dream that the ghost is the spirit of a murdered woman, who may be buried somewhere on the property. After an exhausting search, inside and outside, the body of the dead ... Written by Charles McDonald

...Like AMITYVILLE HORROR with beaches !!!
24 October 2008 | by guestar57See all my reviews

So, You've moved into a new home and friends wanna throw a seance-themed house warming. Was worried at first that this would be a Talking Heads scene with ' I'm a killer' because... BUT, Soon switched to a WHO IS THE KILLER thriller. The house is haunted because a real estate agent gave in to the seduction by a 'door to door hooker' with Vacant House fetish. This tragedy has given to a murder cover-up, And definitely no escrow declaration,VACANT HOUSE is haunted ! Ray & Migdalia Etheridge have done it again, With no budget they still tell a taut story with minimal effects. One of the oddest things about their productions is Florida scenery, Seriously a few paces from VACANT HOUSE location and it's like a jungle.
