Very enjoyable thriller of a writer trying to meet a looking deadline for her latest novel. She is recovering from a mental collapse. She is hearing strange sounds throughout the old house, and things begin moving of their own accord. She find video tapes of the couple that previous lived in the house, and sees their breakdown. On paper this movie is amazing. Great mystery, interesting characters, and lots of character building. Unfortunately Brittany Murphy is bad. She blankly stares in every scenes and adds nothing. The best parts are the video tapes themselves of Thora Birch and Marc Blucas. Blucas is absolutely chilling. Wonderful performance.
