Roger (Ron Livingston) and his wife Carolyn (Lili Taylor) have moved, with their five daughters, to a rickety farmhouse. What the do not know is that it is terribly haunted, and soon they are getting no sleep and experiencing lots of unpleasantness. They turn to paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) who come to the house to try to find a way to deal with this.
This is one of those films that, even watching in a well-lit house during the day with company, still scares me to pieces. There is no way I can watch this type of thing in the cinema because I am totally unable to stop myself screaming at the screen. I found the first half totally freaking out, but once the Warrens had arrived, things got better. I mean, they got worse, but I was just less scared. In the end, I felt as though I had actually achieved getting through this whole film.
