Eleven years after the brutal slaying of their parents, two siblings return to the family home to unearth proof that a malevolent supernatural force was behind their deaths.

Avid horror fans will not necessarily find anything new or original in this supernatural thriller. Malignant spirits occupying household items, possession and hauntings as well as blurring of principle players' realities have been the staple of films such as British horror anthology From the Beyond The Grave (which featured a ravenous mirror), The Shinning, and of course any of films within the Amityville series. However this is still a high quality film worthy to be included in the horror genre.
