In the silence and the black dead of night comes a whisper, faint, barely perceptible. It sighs, then rises in the darkness and blows past your face, suddenly, caressing you with the icy fingers of death. It disappears into nothingness, leaving you with only the terror and the knowledge that this, truly, is a haunting. Aidan Quinn , Kate Beckinsale and Sir John Gielgud lead the all-star cast in this chilling adaptation of the classic James Herbert novel. When David Ash investigates a haunting at an isolated country manor, strange and horrifying occurrences lead him to first doubt his convictions and then his sanity. As the sordid history of the estate's family is revealed, and David falls in love with the mysterious Christina , he begins to see the ghostly image of a young girl calling out to him from an unearthly terror he could never have imagined.
