Dana (Kate Beckinsale) and her husband David (Mel Raido) move onto a new home way out in the country along with their young son. David hires a local boy as a handyman, but he’s creeping Dana out as he is constantly hitting on her, and it appears Dana has has some issues over the last few years. When she keeps hearing noises upstairs, she goes to investigate and finds a small door behind a bookcase that is locked and the key is missing. She becomes really obsessed with this room, and when she finds the key, she goes right into the room and find out that it has some hidden secrets, even the purpose for a hidden room that is not on the blueprints of the house.

This is a pretty decent ghost story, and I haven’t seen one like this in a while. Granted, it’s not an unusually unique story, as I’ve seen this same premise pretty much before, but it was handled very well. Kate Beckinsale is, of course, and excellent actress and this suited her very well. She was helped by the rest of the main characters and made it really believable. This movie was a bit of a surprise, and I am very glad I watched this one as it was quite scary and very suspenseful. There aren’t too many good haunted house stories these days, and this one surprised me with how well it played out. I can recommend this one to horror fans and though it’s an R rating mostly due to the horrific back story and a few scenes early on of a married couple, though it is not too over the top. Mostly it builds up with glimpses and pieces of the puzzle of why this room is there and what it was used for, and how it all came to be quite haunted. If you like a ghost story, then this is a pretty good one in my opinion.
