Strange things begin to happen around the house. Atenton discovers suspicious footprints outside his door. His daughters and wife spot a hooded man spying on them.
Atenton later discovers that the house was the location of a grisly murder. He learns that the alleged killer has just been discharged from a mental health facility. As he sets out to investigate, Atenton stumbles upon an even bigger secret.
Director Jim Sheridan gets the thriller formula right: two children, an ominous basement, some mirrors. But he struggles to find a focus for the story. The movie sways indecisively between a classic thriller, an unconventional drama with a jaw-dropping twist, and strangely a human-ghost love story.
There isn't much scare-you-off-the-chair thrills and the timing is often off in the film. You see the final revelation coming well ahead of time - not least because an inane movie trailer already gave too much away.
A dull script and indifferent background music do not help. Nor does the over-romanticised relationship between Atenton and his wife.
You might be better off just watching the trailer.
