Roger and Carolyn moved their family into an old farm house. strange things started happening around them with escalating terror. one after another they were attacked and threatened their safety. in desperation, Carolyn contacted paranormal investigators, Ed and Lorraine. the investigators stayed in their house with their team of members and soon discover that the house was haunted by great evil. to put things to an end, they had to used their skills and strengths to call and banish the spirit.
we weren't sure if we were surprised or disappointed with a completely no scare horror film. perhaps a little scare every now and then but it was all sound effect and little visual. however, that didn't make the film any less horrifying. the intensity were always higher in the next scenes that it was eerie to find ourselves in each of their shoes. after the evil spirit possessed Carolyn, it got less interesting since we were able to see Carolyn with her scary facial expression other than the invisible evil that played tricks in our mind. in many ways, the involvements of the paranormal investigators seemed to have tamed the film to a certain level, making it seemed less terrifying than before they got involved.
