The Skeptic Reviews
Tim Daily's character is a logical, pragmatic lawyer who pulls no punches when others suggest his Aunt's house (where she recently died) might be haunted. Under no circumstances does he consider the possibility and he makes judicial arguments to anyone who even suggests the possibility of the supernatural. (Tom Arnold's character's main purpose seems to riff against that skepticism).
When the aunt dies and he assumes ownership of the large, imposing victorian mansion, he begins to witness odd, unexplainable occurrences that rile him up even more when he finds out his Aunt had actually willed the home to a school for paranormal research. After confronting the head researcher and accusing him of scamming his aunt out of her home, he is eventually forced to apologize and ask for help in explaining what he keeps experiencing there. I'm perplexed by the low rating here. Possibly because the scare factor and effects themselves are low and it feels more like a TV movie. Regardless of genre and a few odd cast choices, it was effective.
Stop trying to analyze the movie and just enjoy it.
