Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is an ambitious L.A. loan officer with a charming boyfriend, professor Clay Dalton (Justin Long). Life is good until the mysterious Mrs. Ganush (Lorna Raver) arrives at the bank to beg for an extension on her home loan. Should Christine follow her instincts and give the old woman a break? Or should she deny the extension to impress her boss, Mr. Jacks (David Paymer), and get a leg-up on a promotion? Christine fatefully chooses the latter, shaming Mrs. Ganush and dispossessing her of her home.

In retaliation, the old woman places the powerful curse of the Lamia on Christine, transforming her life into a living hell. Haunted by an evil spirit and misunderstood by a skeptical boyfriend, she seeks the aid of seer Rham Jas (Dileep Rao) to save her soul from eternal damnation. To help the shattered Christine return her life to normal, the psychic sets her on a frantic course to reverse the spell. As evil forces close in, Christine must face the unthinkable: how far will she go to break free of the curse?

  • 4 stars "This is as perfect a popcorn horror film as I ever hope to see. The effects are great, the story is simple and delicious and even the jump scares get you so good. I hope my friend who works at the crooked pawn shop never sees this film: he gets cursed by angry gypsies all the time. I can't tell whether the excess in this film is TOO over-the-top or not. Everything is exaggerated: the manifestation of the evil goat demon, the old gypsy woman's ugliness, and especially the lengths to which Christine must go to dissuade the demon or remove the curse. What a fun movie to watch. I can't wait to see it again. Once you get over the startle scares, which again are done much more artfully than most,"
