When frightening events start to occur in their home, young couple Kelly (Ashley Greene) and Ben (Sebastian Stan) discover they are being haunted by a presence that was accidentally conjured during a university parapsychology experiment. The horrifying apparition feeds on their fear and torments them no matter where they try to run. Their last hope is an expert in the supernatural (Tom Felton), but even with his help they may already be too late to save themselves from this terrifying force…
Ashley Greene and Sebastian Stan play a couple named Kelly and Ben, and this boyfriend and girlfriend move into a new house together and begin to experience supernatural happenings such as a drawer and box moving by themselves in addition to loud noises and flickering lights. When a dog visits their home it suddenly weakens and is near death with no natural explanation. Kelly does not know that Ben had previously been involved in a paranormal experiment which apparently has released a spirit which grows stronger with each passing day with an apparent plan to dominate. Since the house is new, they know they are being haunted and not the house. Ben’s friend Patrick (Tom Felton) studies this spirit in a special room where he is able to keep the force out. However, things take a turn for the worse when Kelly finally learns about Ben’s experience in the past and Patrick comes to their home to try to stop the swelling power of the entity.
They plan to play the recording of their experience backwards and to use transmitters to amplify EEG’s to hopefully reverse the entity’s powers. This movie is rated PG-13 and although is not as intense as some other pictures in this genre, it still has several strong supernatural elements including a séance, and frightening jump scenes, in addition to having two main characters live together without the benefit of marriage. It falls short of earning our Dove “Family-Approved” Seal.
