Sarah (Olsen), her father John (Trese) and uncle Peter (Sheffer Stevens) meet to clear out a family seaside cottage before it is sold. When the family is assailed by a perhaps-ghostly menace, Sarah finds herself doubting her own senses as past crimes affect the present.
It works as a suspense-building scare machine, given heart and depth by Olsen’s performance — though it’s still an effective exercise in misdirection rather than a strikingly original vision, and now it’s a remake of an effective exercise in misdirection.
