The couple Catherine Clare (Amanda Seyfried) and her husband George Clare (James Norton) move to an old farmhouse in Hudson Valley, New York with their young daughter. Her new house is in need of renovation, but George’s new lucrative job at a renowned local art college looks very promising.
Once settled in the rustic idyll, Catherine often feels uncomfortable in her new home. She believes there is something bad in the air. When she comes across an old Bible and finds handwritten references to past atrocities there, she is responsible for getting to the bottom of the apparitions.
She slowly realizes that her husband is keeping some secrets from her. An affair with the much younger student Willis (Natalia Dyer) also creates tension in the marriage. Still, are the evil spirits of the past responsible for the breakdown of the marriage in the end? Or is the young family expecting a far worse fate that will even endanger their lives?
