A young woman returns to Tokyo, following a car accident that fractured both of her legs. While her brother Koichi provides hospitality for Haruka, weird noises and events transpire in the house - leading to a more horrifying truth.
Daniel Rey along with his wife, Kristi; daughter, Ali; toddler son, Hunter, and their dog, move to Carlsbad, California. A few days later their residence is broken into, however, nothing appears to be missing. In order to prevent re-occurrences, they install a number of security cameras that will record everything on a DVR. After they hire a Spanish-speaking nanny to look after Hunter, she informs them that there is something wrong in their house and performs prayers, much to the chagrin of Daniel, who lets her go. He will subsequently regret this decision as more inexplicable and strange incidents occur, with Ali concluding, after a research, that their house may be possessed by a demonic entity.Written by

(at around 39 mins) The movie is set in 2006, but during one of the earlier scenes before the 'Demon' attacks, the TV is seen in the background of the kitchen and the Dyson advert that was released in 2009 is clearly visible. See more »

There is a three minute long deleted scene where the power goes out and Hunter disappears from the house, but is found crawling outside the house on the street. The family leaves in a hurry for the rest of the night; the final shots of the scene show the house the next morning, unoccupied and in complete disarray. In the kitchen, the pans are still moving.

This film just felt so forced. The story line intertwined with the first one which was not my problem, it was the prolonged build up which did not create tension but rather a dull bored thirst for some action. When the film finally did open up and all characters were aware of the demon it was a short lived sense of suspense.
The idea in itself of a demon in a house haunting a family with demonic references and not just a simple ghost story personally fascinates me. This film on the other hand did not, iv found youtube videos of hauntings "freakier" than this film. Over all i felt like this was a major let down. Whilst trying to fully appreciate the style of a real life film with a more sensible form of a haunting i really did feel bored for the majority of the film.
I would suggest to anyone out their who either is not scared easily or who is actually interested in cinematic quality to stay away from this film. A combination of house security tapes and hand held camera even with its particular style does not justify this film being cinema quality in my opinion. A waste of my £9.
