A family temporarily moves into a big old mansion on the English Moors. The mother, Meg (Olivia Williams), restores old building and she's fixing it for her rich client. Her husband, Alec (Mathew Modine) is a sculptor. They also have a teenaged daughter and a younger son. Almost immediately some strange things happen, like windows closing by themselves. When the husband and wife finds a hidden room he cuts himself--and we see a droplet of blood sucked into the floor like a sponge. The house is hungry. The daughter begins seeing a girl ghost and the husband begins to act stranger and stranger. The wife is even visited by a strange, thin man who insists he can help her with the house--and she eventually discovers, while looking at old photos, that he was the original owner.
There's great production value and a creepy location. But the lead actors seem too old to be parents of teenagers and the movie predictably has elements from both THE AMITYVILLE HORROR and THE SHINING films. It's not a bad film, just a familiar one.
