Thriller Paranormal - Supernatural | Horror
In the vein of The Couple Next Door, a debut
psychological thriller about a woman who moves with her
family to the gothic seaside house where her husband grew up
-- and where 15 years ago another family was brutally
Sarah and Patrick are happy. But
after her mother's death, Sarah spirals into depression and
overdoses on sleeping pills. While Sarah claims it was an
accident, her teenage children aren't so sure. Patrick
decides they all need a fresh start and he knows just the
place, since the idyllic family home where he was raised has
recently come up for sale. There's only one catch: for the
past fifteen years, it has become infamous as the "Murder
House", standing empty after a family was stabbed to death
within its walls.
Patrick believes they can bring the
house back to its former glory, so Sarah, uprooted from
everything she knows, pours her energy into painting,
gardening, and giving the rotting old structure the warmth
of home. But with locals hinting that the house is haunted,
the news that the murderer has been paroled, strange writing
on the walls, and creepy "gifts" arriving on the doorstep
at odd hours, Sarah can't shake the feeling that something
just isn't right. Not with the house, not with the town, or
even with her own, loving husband -- whose stories about his
perfect childhood suddenly aren't adding up. Can Sarah
uncover the secrets of the Murder House before another
family is destroyed?
