At night, in principle, there is something that is associated with terror. Soon, both Katherine and Franny begin to perceive different events in the house in the style of a poltergeist. That is, there are ghosts that make noise at night, change the electric current and harass new tenants. George does not fully believe what is happening at first, mainly because he does not believe that Catherine is in a state of complete mental health.
While the plot unfolds most of all with terror at night, the film introduces the dysfunctionality of marriage during the day. Katherine suffers from bulimia, an aspect of the character that the story doesn't go into, and is somewhat upset about her lonely life. In turn, George begins to follow one of the university students, Willis (Natalia Dyer), because he is clearly drawn to him. He also joins the community of teachers in which Dean Floyd (the prestigious F. Murray Abraham since his interpretation of Salieri in Amadeus -1984-) and teacher Justine (Rhea Seehorn, best known for her role as Kim Wexler in Better Call Saul) ... ).
On the other hand, problems related to the marriage crisis are solved during the day, for example, the search for new companies. The film has an interesting and engaging approach, but it starts to fail when it enters the story it tells. The main problem with things heard and seen is that too many elements and characters are not revealed in two hours while the film is running. Neither the ownership of the house nor the profile of the lead couple are fully captured. Sometimes there is a feeling that Springer Berman and Pulcini have not decided which film to shoot, and they are left with a strange and dysfunctional cross between fantasy horror and pair drama.
Or maybe they should have offered Netflix to film a series. In the end, the film turns into a vertigo that spoils what was originally well-built. So many things being played at the same time make a lot of noise. The things that were heard and seen needed such an abundance of resources, more simplicity and clarity.
