After the tragic death of his wife (Lauren Shaw), Alex (Jack Campbell) moves into a house in the country with his two daughters, teenaged Rachel (Whitney Rose Pynn) and young Sophie (Isabella Kai) - and Rachel doesn't like it much, as she's not only cut off from everybody she knows out here, she also knows her dad has his own agenda, to write a book that proves that the house where the brutal murder of a family has happened decades ago, isn't haunted - and that's even though Alex actually is freaked out by a lot of things about the house pretty quickly. Sophie on the other hand likes their new home, and also her new friend Gabriel (Jayden Besana), who everybody thinks is imaginary, even after she finds a trinket under his direction and wears it for protection. Of course, the house is really haunted, as proven by a friendly neighbour's (Catherine Kresge) stories, the phone company guy's (Michael Welch) hasty escape, Sophie's stories about Gabriel and his family - including his evil twin Miguel (Jordan Besana) - that grow increasingly detailed and in line with reports of the murdered family, and the first person reports of Rachel who has had a run-in with the ghosts. And yet Alex locks out everything that might shake his beliefs that there's no such thing as ghosts - until he runs into them himself. Upon this, he tries to make a hasty escape with his daughters, but then his daughters disappear ...

Kevin Sorbo makes an appearance late in the movie as an expert on all things paranormal.

 

Now this movie is not the re-invention of the wheel exactly, but it does what it does very well, and that's telling a very spooky ghost story. And doing that, the film finds a perfect balance of suspense and jump scares while slowly building up its story with all its twists and turns that don't detract from the general eeriness of things though, instead banking on a slow reveal, narratively as well as visually. And the surprise reveal at the end really packs a punch, even if it makes perfect sense within the film's logic, and it's only one more piece that makes this a pretty cool spooker.
