Jim Evers is a workaholic realtor. His wife and business partner, Sara was summoned to a mansion on a weekend they were going away with there two young children. Jim, being a workaholic, insists on going. Due to a storm, the streets are flooded and they can’t leave. That’s when they find out the place is haunted and Jim realizes whats important when he has to rescue his family.

It’s a little dark for a Disney movie, isn’t it? At the beginning a guy hangs himself… That being said though, I really like Eddie Murphy movies. Plus, it’s a kinda sorta funny with a bit of a horror thing so… awesome. The story itself itself is kinda creepy cute. There’s not actually much to say. I liked the actors, story was ok.

Overall, you aren’t missing out on anything if you don’t watch it, but I like it.
