Storyline

A mother and her two teenage daughters move into an ancient house in a suburb of Detroit, when it is offered at a very low price, much to the dislike of the elder daughter. Soon, the younger child begins to see strange things in the house, but the mother disregards her claims, saying that it is only her imagination. Then the elder child also begins to notice creepy phenomena but does not speak about it. Only when things take a more serious turn and the mother too starts to witness strange events does she realize that something really is wrong with the house. Written by varghesejunior

Pretty Boring Made-For-TV "Horror"
19 January 2015 | by dfa120374See all my reviews

Newly divorced Rachel and her two daughters, Lizzie & Molly, move out of their cramped apartment to a spacious new house which is also much closer to Rachel's new work. Everything seems to go fine until Molly starts to see visions of a young girl, and when she tries to explain it to her mother, it gets dismissed as stress of the move and adjusting to a new house. When the strange goings on continue, Rachel decides to do some investigating and not before long she discovers that the house is harbouring a dark secret.

This is a made-for-TV movie and you can tell that as soon as you start watching it. Made-for-TV horror movies generally just do not work and this is a classic example of that as it is pretty dull, there's no real atmosphere, it is not at all scary or creepy, it's very clichéd & predictable, and the acting, while not that bad, is just very wooden.

In fact, it's very much like a "scary movie" for the young teens than anything else. Young teen girls at that, so anyone above the age of 13 and is of the male gender will find this movie to be pretty much a yawn-a-thon.

I wouldn't waste your time with this to be honest as there is much, much better movies out there.
