Miniature painter Annie Graham lives happily with her husband Steve, her high school son Peter, and teenage daughter Charlie. Unexpectedly, she receives news of the passing of her mother, who had been a secretive woman in recent years. After the funeral, strange things begin to happen in the family home: frightening noises are heard at night, objects are out of place, and vandals have desecrated the dead woman’s grave.

Going through her mother’s old things, Annie finds magical books, strange amulets and a diary. The woman realizes that her mother was involved in the occult, but the worst part is that her death may have been part of a sinister ritual.

In the scene where Alex Wolfe’s character bangs his head on the table, the surface was supposed to be soft, but for some unknown reason the table turned out to be real. As a result, the actor broke his nose and injured his lower lip.
