What would it take for you to believe in the supernatural? Tim Daly stars as lawyer Bryan Becket, a cynical control freak who inherits his aunt s creepy Victorian mansion after her mysterious death. But when this die-hard doubter begins to experience a series of increasingly vicious and personal paranormal events, he turns to his business partner (Tom Arnold) and an eccentric medium (Zoe Saldana of Star Trek) for answers. There are ghostly forces in our world that cannot be explained by science or understood by a rational mind. And for one skeptic, the horrifying truth behind some secrets may be waiting behind the door down a dark hallway of the soul. Andrea Roth (Rescue Me), Edward Herrmann (Gilmore Girls) and Robert Prosky (in his final film role) co-star in this thinking man s haunted house movie from the award-winning writer/director of Dorian Blues.

Maybe it was because I knew nothing of this movie when I watched it but thought it was brilliant. There's no gore, no amazing effects, it's just suspenseful in the way of the 6th sense. The ending has a twist I've never seen in a horror movie before.
I have recommended this movie to all those you I know love horror, didn't tell them about them movie, and they loved it.

Tim Daly gives an amazing performance as Bryan, very credible and moving. Tom Arnold was wonderful as his law partner, and his wife, played by Andrea Roth, was very convincing in portraying her frustration and deep love for her husband. I did not like the role of the psychic played by Zoe Saldana. She played it way too over the top and I half expected her to whip out some snakes and do a voodoo ritual, rather than just portray a concerned psychic who was there to help Bryan. Her scenes were distracting and unnecessarily over dramatized, as when she bites the researcher's face and bears her claws at Bryan. I didn't buy it for one minute. And I didn't like her overt sexuality toward Bryan, it wasn't necessary to the story line at all. However, I did enjoy the movie for the other performances and for the concept, although, in my opinion, the ending was misjudged and totally unsatisfying. I will say no more on that. I do recommend this movie for it's unique take on the paranormal and for Tim Daly's wonderful performance.
