Jen Hooper blames herself for the accident which took the life of her young brother and is not only guilt ridden but overly protective of Ben. Jen quickly becomes convinced that something is not right with the house after peculiar occurrences with young Ben. Ben can’t articulate what he’s seen since he stopped speaking when his brother died, and Jen’s story is met with skepticism by her parents. The creepy neighbors next door only add to Jen’s suspicion that her father’s “dream house” is turning into a nightmare. Mayhem ensues when the parents leave Jen alone to babysit young Ben. The creatures from the attic attack and Jen isn’t about to lose her only remaining brot her. Now the guilt and shame that has haunted her is the only thing keeping her and her brother alive.

User Reviews: From the start it was clear this movie was going to be terrible. From the generic quality to the horrible acting and audio issues. The actress who plays the mother is so terrible she may be the worst i’ve ever seen. The father was boring and flat and unmemorable with line deliveries that are so forced and contrived you’d think he was auditioning for an elementary school play. Onto the children, the boy didn’t have a lot to really do so it didn’t matter that he was bad. The daughter was the only one with some level of potential and is the only one who seemed to have any kind of talent or training.

Now onto the plot, if you can call it that was recycled bits of other horror movies thrown together. Sometimes that can be fun but this time it didn’t even make any sense. I am the kind of person that has to finish a movie I start. Watching this disaster of a "movie" though, I found myself wishing it was a 5 minute short on youtube and nearly stopped watching at least a dozen times. Trust me, this is coming from someone who has been watching Horror constantly since the early 80’s and can usually find something redeemable in most films…. skip this one. It is a waste of time.

Just a side note, IMDb really should come up with some kind of system to prevent anyone involved in a movie from planting fake positive reviews.
