For magazine editor, Tim Jensen (Barry Watson), the fear is very real – and in the movie’s first scene, we soon see why. In his eerie, isolated home on a stormy (naturally) night, a scared eight-year-old Tim is comforted by his father. But Tim’s terror is tripled when dad is suddenly yanked into the closet and never seen again.
Fifteen years later, Tim still has not been able to forget the experience. Closets still give him the creeps. He has had psychiatric help, but his shrink believes he probably invented the incredible tale about his father as a reaction to being left by him.
When Tim’s mother, Mary (Lucy Lawless) dies, he has to return to his old haunt. Literally. His therapist thinks it will be the ideal time for him to exorcise his demons once and for all. Mmm.
Back home, he meets a former childhood friend, Kate (Emily Deschanel) and Franny (Skye McCole Bartusiak), a young girl who has similar fears to his own. To conquer those fears, Tim decides that he will stay overnight in his old home, but instead he proves that what caused them was not imaginary after all…
