Now, after her father’s final desperate act, Laurie returns to claim his estate with her husband and ten-year-old daughter. However, the past seems unwilling to remain buried. Laurie senses it in the broken moldings, sees it in an empty picture frame, and hears it laughing in the moldy greenhouse deep in the woods. At first, she thinks she’s imagining things, but when her daughter befriends a girl named Abigail, Laurie is struck by the child’s uncanny resemblance to another little girl who once lived next door—a girl who died there. With each passing day, Laurie’s unease intensifies, her thoughts grow more disturbing. Is she following in her father’s footsteps, descending into madness, or is something truly sinister happening to these sweet little girls?
