    • Synopsis
    • Following a devastating miscarriage, a New York family abandon their hectic City routine for the peace of a small Long Island town. Renting a large house, reluctantly vacated by a middle-aged spinster and her domineering mother, Jonathan, Cecile and their two children Ariel and Morgan settle in to rebuild their lives. Exploring the rooms and corridors, eight-year-old Ariel (Sydney McCann) is the first to feel unease about the house having previously suffered nightmares that foresaw terror. Resuming his career as a grief counselor at the town’s local hospital, Jonathan (Eric Roberts) learns of the curious relationship of the house’s prior occupants: Alice (Cathy Moriarty) and her bed-ridden mother Sophia who has suddenly entered an unexplained coma that Dr Williams (Robert Vaughn) cannot comprehend. The family all falls under the influence of the unnerving presence occupying the women’s house. Cecile’s (Deborah Twiss) demeanor becomes increasingly lustful and provocative with men and the family find themselves at the mercy of a terrifying and violent manifestation that Ariel identifies as a tortured young boy, Sebastien. In fear for their family, Jonathan and Cecile must unlock the secret that binds Sebastien’s torment with the two former hateful occupants and the local priest Father Thomas whom Alice bars from ever seeing her mother. Only then will the family be able to release themselves from Sebastien’s hold and help him and themselves move on.
