Casey Beldon (Odette Yustman) hated her mother for leaving her as a child. But when inexplicable things start to happen, Casey begins to understand why she left. Plagued by merciless dreams and a tortured ghost that haunts her waking hours, she must turn to the only spirtual advisor, Sendak (Gary Oldman), who can make it stop.

With Sendak's help, Casey uncovers the source of a family curse dating back to Nazi Germany—a creature with the ability to inhabit anyone or anything that is getting stronger with each possession. With the curse unleashed, her only chance at survival is to shut a doorway from beyond our world that has been pried open by someone who was never born.

  • 1 star "Oh my god. This movie is what's wrong with contemporary horror cinema. It might as well have been called "David Goyer Cashes A Cheque". Oh no! Bad things are happening to this charming young woman who can't act! Whatever shall she do? What a mess. With competant people, this film might have been salvaged. The story moves so clumsily that you can actually see all the little cogs and wheels that are moving Odette Yustman unknowingly towards all the scary stuff that she will inevitably encounter. It's all here: the scary evil child, the scary evil symbolism, the inexplicable connection to the holocaust, bugs, haunted hospitals, the craggy old intellectual who's "retired from this game, man." In"
  • 4 stars "This movie was good it was better than it had to be given the story material. Gary Oldman should have been given ad bigger part. Odette Yustman was good it was not oscar material but she was good. Lots of jumps and a half decent story line."
