Plot

John Haloran has a fatal heart attack, but his wife Louise won't get any of the inheritance when Lady Haloran dies if John is dead. Louise forges a letter from John to convince the rest of his family he's been called to New York on important business, and goes to his Irish ancestral home, Castle Haloran, to meet the family and look for a way to ensure a cut of the loot. Seven years earlier John's sister Kathleen was drowned in the pond, and the Halorans enact a morbid ritual in remembrance. Secrets shroud the sister's demise, and soon the family and guests begin experiencing an attrition problem.
 

Comments

Irish?, 12 January 2003 Author: leona-5 from Canada This film is supposed to take place in Ireland, and several of the characters are supposed to be Irish, however no one seems to have an Irish accent. The characters are, in no particular order, a woman and her three sons, plus the gf of one son and the wife of another. A doctor comes onto the scene, and a gardener type also wanders around. There is also a maid who is sometimes seen. I believe the sons of the woman were born in Ireland, but received their education in America. The significant others are American, however everyone else is Irish. Only the doctor attempts an Irish accent, and that's only in one scene. I am puzzled by the absolute lack of Irish voices. Since most people have American accents, why not just have the film take place in America, on the grounds of a large estate? This really distracted me from the rest of the film, which I would only rate as so-so anyway. Better scares can be had from Wise's The Haunting, or Carnival of Souls.
