Storyline

Siblings Jackson and Angela run a profitable ghostbusting racket; swindling the bereaved with fake detection equipment and Angela's paranormal 'visions'. Hired to investigate a haunted old foster home, the team uncover its terrifying past: young girls brutally slaughtered, mouths stitched shut; silenced by a sadistic killer. And Angela's on the edge - sleepless, strung out and losing her mind, no longer certain what's actually real; convinced she hears the girls crying out to her from the darkness... But supernatural terrors are the least of their problems when they discover the very real evil lurking in the isolated house. Written by Sigma Films

We've seen this all before..
5 October 2018 | by brandyjirikSee all my reviews

This was one of those horror movies where you can predict the outcome 15 minutes into the story.We've seen this all before,nothing special or new.Acting was well played in my opinion by everyone but it seriously lacked originality. Good for a one time watch and i honestly wanted something unusual or shocking to happen but it played out EXACTLY as i thought it would.
