After her mother's death, Sarah spirals into depression and overdoses on sleeping pills. She insists it was an accident, but neither her husband, Patrick, nor their teenage children believe her. Determined to give their family a fresh start, Patrick convinces her to move back to the idyllic beachside home where he grew up. But the once-beautiful old house is now known as the Murder House. It has been standing empty for 15 years, ever since another family was brutally slaughtered within its walls. As locals hint that the house is haunted, the children begin having nightmares, strange writing appears on the walls, and creepy "gifts" suddenly arrive on the doorstep at odd hours. With the news that the murderer has been paroled, Sarah can't shake the feeling that something just isn't right.
