The Haunting delves into the story of a modest family moving into a new home.  The excitement and elation of stepping foot in their new house quickly loses its buzz when they begin to hear strange sounds emanating throughout the domicile.  What starts as a joyous celebration, turns to horror as the family quickly realizes they are not alone!  From apparitions, to dancing ghosts, to ghastly demons; will the family members escape the horror?  Will they be consumed by the terror lurking in the home? Was it all a dream?
