As the family settles into their new home, Matt grows increasingly disturbed by paranormal activity that seems to inhabit and possess the house.

Trapped by falling rocks, the rescue party are driven deep into the caverns, and as one by one the fate of the missing girls is revealed, Sarah is forced to confront her deepest fears.
