PG-13 | | Horror, Mystery, Thriller
A woman who lives in a darkened old house with her two photosensitive children becomes convinced that her family home is haunted.
Now children, are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin... This story started many thousands of years ago, and it was all over in just 7 days. All that long long time ago, none of the things we can see now, the sun, the moon, the stars, the earth...
Grace believes her children cannot be exposed to ANY daylight and seems to be constantly vigilant about it. When Anne comes out of the bedroom after talking to her father, the curtains are very obviously pulled open with lots of light coming in yet she acts like it is nothing unusual.
Before the opening credits or music begin, we hear Grace's voice over a black screen; she says (in the manner of a mother about to tell a bedtime story), "Are you sitting comfortably? Then I'll begin."
