    • Synopsis
    • In Victorian England, innocent shopgirl Constance falls in love with Dr. Joseph Barton, a medical researcher. They soon marry, but their intense passion is cut short. After the life-threatening birth of daughter Angelica, puritanical doctors order abstinence, condemning Constance for lascivious appetites. Sexual repression opens a rift between the young couple.

      Frustration leads to obsession and Constance becomes more and more protective of Angelica. Joseph’s secrets fuel the growing conflicts. Then, late at night, the household begins to be disrupted by what appears to be a paranormal predator. The eerie nocturnal visits multiply, evermore menacing and vividly evoking Constance’s deepest fears.

      With the help of staunch maid Nora, Constance reaches out to a spiritualist to cleanse the home of its terrors. But the arrival of charismatic Anne Montague brings even more complexities to the deteriorating Barton household. Constance places her deepest trust in Anne, and, together, they fight against a force that may be more sinisterly human than supernatural…
