Alec Hamilton, his wife, Meg and their children have moved to the darkly beautiful but desolate Radcliffe House. A mosaic on the floor hints at the terrible murder by Radcliffe of his wife Isabella - the result of a demonic black magic ritual that led to his suicide... or did it?
What terrible ghostly creatures haunt this house, teasing, taunting and invading those who linger within? And what is driving Alec, maniacally, to recreate the presence of Isabella in the body of his wife?
The fear that rises up within them all will soon be overtaken by something more powerful and more deadly. The ritual is about to be enacted again, the past bloodily thrust into the present. Who will perish or survive and how will grip you to the driving moments of The Haunting of Radcliffe House.

Sometimes it is better not to know! - The Haunting of Radcliffe House review by NP

Spoiler Alert

No-nonsense Meg (Olivia Williams) has been hired to renovate a sprawling, ramshackle Yorkshire mansion. Unfazed by the task at hand, her family are brought along to accompany her. Artistic Alec (Matthew Nodine), her partner is enthusiastic. Her two children are not.

Unhappy they may be, but Penny and Harper (Antonia Clarke and Adam Thomas Wright) are two likeable children, not prey to the poutings that define others of their age group in films such as this. The acting is great, but Director Nick Willing makes sure the property itself is the star. Sprawling and oppressive, it could never be anything other than a haunted house. Typecasting!

As events become spookier, if not entirely original, they also become confusing, and other characters are brought in to explain what's going on, including a brief turn from Steve Oram's Nigel the ghost hunter. Even then, many things remain unanswered. Some find that annoying. In this case, I am happy with the outcome - sometimes it's better not to know everything!

A recommended chiller. My score is 7 out of 10.
