    • Synopsis
    • After a recent psychotic episode, Danielle, a young psychology student, is trying to rebuild her life when she sublets a century-old Victorian house. Unknowingly, her presence awakens an evil specter lurking in the dark recesses of her new home. To prove to her sister, Anna, that she isn't delusional again, Danielle sets out to document the haunting. She discovers that years earlier the great mesmerizer, Mordecai Zymytryk, lived in the house. In the attic a century ago, Zymytryk used his hypnotic powers to exact his own cruel brand of vengeance - but on who and why…the answers come soon enough.
      Danielle discovers a hidden room, and in it a music box that holds a horrifying secret. Opening the music box, she unleashes the soul of Edgar Crowe, a vicious child killer, who quickly seizes control of her mind and body. Hungry to satisfy his taste for torturing boys, Crowe uses Danielle like a pawn to resurrect his ghastly 'Panic Chair.' Now, Anna is faced with a seemingly impossible task - destroy Crowe without destroying her sister. Finally, the solution comes to Anna, but is it buried too deeply with Crowe and Zymytryk in the long dead past for her to reach?
