A prequel set before the haunting of the Lambert family that reveals how gifted psychic Elise Rainier reluctantly agrees to use her ability to contact the dead in order to help a teenage girl who has been targeted by a dangerous supernatural entity.
A gripping story of a family in search of help for their son, Dalton, who fell into a coma after a mysterious incident in the attic. Little do they know that there is much more to this endless sleep than meets the eye as they explore the paranormal, and rediscover the past; the key to getting their son back once and for all.

When Josh and Dalton are swarmed by people in the Further and the electricity of the house begins to go out in the living world, we hear the bulbs shatter. However, some of the lights that go out are clearly candles or other non-glass things yet we still hear the sound effect for them. See more »

Distant voices/noises/whizzes, flashing lights, music from the past, ghost busting and exorcism?! Those who think the above mentioned are hair-raising should have their mind/nerves checked and cured. It would be another story in case of a wrongdoer, a criminal, or an alien, a vampire - at least. In the era of digital effects, ghosts and devils may be catchy to watch, but, in fact, they are unable to terminate someone's life. That is why I prefer physical evil as - in the event of well written and directed movies - it is hard to predict the course of events and ending (e.g., Se7en, Silence of the Lambs).
The cast is also just above average, nothing special. The ending has a twist, but, nevertheless, I cannot comprehend the movie's popularity and I can hardly recommend this movie to anyone I know. If you must see a similar movie, then pick The Others or Rosemary's Baby.
