The name of this movie is actually quite ironic in and of itself since the movie made me feel like I was in a disappointing room as a result of watching it. The drama/thriller film is about a family who has recently moved to the countryside, until the mother begins experiencing very strange dreams. As she explores the home, she discovers an attic that contains the mystery of the 19th century family that lived there before them. The movie was ridiculously slow paced and at times it felt like there was no specific storyline being followed. The performances fell flat and none of the scenes were really all that scary. I would rate this movie a generous 2.5/5 stars. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

so here's the thing....once the movie was over, you go " huh?"..not because you don't understand what went on, but because NOTHING is resolved, there is no ending at all...its as if they wrote a script for half a movie then someone said " Okay we need to wrap this up today".
It needs a final act. In all so called horror movies, there is either mystery,tension,poltergeists, blood baths, spooky jumps, twists, etc. but in this movie you get Kate Beckinsale looking as lovely as ever, dealing with a past trauma in her life, and experiencing SOMETHING that went on in the house they have moved into....what happened there is explained in a short scene but what others ( like her husband) do about it, is left to, well, nothing. He doesnt even come into play in the final scheme of things....Either someone made this to have people say " we need to see the sequel", or they simply took a short story and tried to make a film out of it, then realized when the budget and time ran out, they had to wrap it up and get it done.
I sympathize with anyone who actually spent money on this junk...

This movie is very DISAPPOINTING. If I could give less than half a star I would.
