Synopsis by Jason Buchanan
A teenage ghost teams up with a living girl to stop a phantom killer, and break a vicious supernatural cycle in this psychological horror tale from director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice). Lisa Johnson (Abigail Breslin) was just one day shy of 16 when her entire family perished back in 1986. Ever since, the spirits of the young girl and her family have been trapped reliving the monotonous routine of their last day alive. Meanwhile, in the present day, young Olivia (Eleanor Zichy) moves into the Johnson's old house with her family, and bears witness to a disturbing transformation; her typically loving father is acting like a man possessed, prompting the startled teen to fear for her family's safety. Later, after failing to break through to her own family, Lisa manages to communicate with Olivia, and makes a shocking discovery: The house was once owned by a notorious serial killer who preyed on young girls (Stephen McHattie). Although dead, the madman has summoned the power to possess the living, and now dwells in the body of Olivia's father. Now, should the two girls fail to manage to stop the killer soon, the worst may be yet to come.
