When Liam’s family moves into a creepy old house in a strange new town, he immediately feels like something is wrong. It’s as if the house is trying to tell him something, and whatever it is it’s something really bad.

Dad thinks Liam’s just missing his dead mother, but when Liam and his sister summon a terrifying spirit through the bathroom mirror, the battle with the house becomes a life-or-death situation. Can the kids persuade Dad to listen to them before it’s too late?
