The young teacher Adam and his wife Lisa are waiting for the completion of the family. In an instant, the idyll of a happy couple collapses. They are faced with an unknown evil that turns their lives into hell. In the hope of getting rid of the horror that is pursuing them, Adam begs the help of parapsychologist Clark. When he begins work, Clark realizes that the ominous entity they encountered is much more dangerous than he had imagined. And then the terrible truth about this nightmare is revealed to the spouses.
This was Felix Cramer's first feature film filmed in America. See more »
There's no such thing as an American university that's short on qualified teaching staff in the the math department, as Dr. Clark said. There are so few tenure-track teaching jobs left that there would be major competition for prof. Pierce's position, no matter how haunted the faculty housing was, and no matter how many parapsychology courses the head of the math department taught. See more »
I watched this because Josh Stewart has starred in many well done little indie thrillers. This is not one of them. There just isn't anything here that is original, very scary, or hasn't been done a dozen times before and better. There are a few jump scares, but this movie is both tame and lame. Overall it's just dull. You know it's not a good sign when you're watching a horror film and you're thinking "wow that's a really nice house, I like the dark molding , but the furnishings look a bit cheap". When the set decoration is more interesting then anything the actors are doing or saying on screen, you know you're watching a stinker. Not worth even watching once. I'm only giving it even the 4 stars because I feel sorry for Josh. He deserves better.
