A terrified nine year old begins to believe he's fallen under the spell of a malevolent family curse in this adaptation of Margaret Mahy's novel The Haunting. Barney Palmer is a typical little boy with one major exception - otherworldly specters seem to follow him wherever he goes. Terrified, Barney suspects that a family curse may be to blame for his frightening visions, but discovers that there may be more to the story upon unearthing some long-buried family secrets.
