Our Score
Lipstick Jungle's Lindsay Price adds good looks but very little else to this banal haunted-house tale. Struggling for naturalism in her weakly written role, she plays an introverted artist who's forced to find new inner strengths to break a curse that's afflicted the male heirs in her husband's family for centuries. Insubstantial plotting makes events dull and predictable, leading to a genre-hopping mishmash of visual styles, as director Jean-Claude Lord tries to boost his material and pick up the pace. Yet, despite his and the cast's best efforts, it's only the bursts of foreboding music that provide any sense of eerie atmosphere - a lazy device ill-served by the preposterous dialogue and lame finale.

Summary

A woman moves into her husband's family home after the death of her father-in-law, dismissing rumours that the property is cursed. However, when her spouse is involved in a near-fatal accident, she determines to uncover the truth behind the mystery. Thriller, starring Lindsay Price, David Jones, Sadie LeBlanc, Niall Matter and Emma Stevens.
