Storyline

Donald Koch, a.k.a. "Don", "King Don" and "Tiger", moves from Chicago to the suburbs since his wife Liz is pregnant and they believe the location is adequate to raise a family with children. Liz buys an old house and Don, who is unemployed, goes with his dog Cooper first to renovate the house. Soon he learns from his neighbor Ellie Mueller that the house was a brothel many years ago. Then he meets another neighbor, the sexy Sarah Yates, and they have sex in the house. When Sarah returns to visit him, he says that their affair was a mistake since he is married and asks her to not come back again. On the weekend, his friend Milo Stone comes to help Don in the renovation. But soon the house shows supernatural events and Milo, Don and Liz learn that the place is haunted with a sordid past.

Did You Know?

Trivia

At one point in the film the main characters name Don Koch, is mispronounced "Coke" instead of "Koch". Phil Brooks who plays Don is known for having a large Pepsi logo tattoo, which you can see on him during the film, and also the "Pepsi Plunge" was one of his signature moves during his wrestling career.

Goofs

At about the 45 minute mark, Don is on the phone to Liz on a video call. He's clearly using the rear phone camera as he's showing her the freshly-decorated wall & smoothing it down yet she sees Sarah walk across the room behind him, implying use of the front phone camera on the call. See more »

Absolutely horrible. One of the worst movies I've seen all year.
26 October 2019 | by manuelasaezSee all my reviews

The trailer really tricked me. It made me believe that this movie was going to be well written, well acted and scary. Man, was I terribly, horribly wrong. It was like watching a he worst episode of an HGTV show; the whole movie is comprised of a thin lipped man trying to renovate an ugly house. But the house keeps dripping snot and black Gak everywhere, and there is a neighbor that just won't leave him alone.

Seriously, this movie was bad. It wasn't even in the so bad, it was good category. It wasn't scary, it wasn't particularly well acted, and the story has been told much better dozens of times before. It was so poorly executed, that insane considers turning it off with 20 minutes left until the end. But I persevered, just to see the train wreck burn a little longer, and I wasn't disappointed.

One of the worst sacks of garbage I have ever had the displeasure of watching. Do not even watch it if it's free on cable. Erase this movie and those of this movie from your kind and never speak of it again.
