The house starts turning on the group and horrifying secrets of the generations who have lived and died there come to the surface.
The cast has a surprisingly large number of familiar faces in it, including Emily Deschanel (Bones), Melanie Lynskey (Castle Rock), Jimmi Simpson (Westworld), Matt Ross (American Horror Story), Matt Keeslar (The Middleman), Nancy Travis (Three Men and a Baby, So I Married an Axe Murderer) and Julian Sands (A Room With a View, Warlock).
One of the actors, David Dukes (Dawson’s Creek), who plays Professor Carl Miller, unexpectedly died while playing tennis on his day off from filming the movie. Since filming of Dukes’ scenes wasn’t complete, director Craig Baxley completed the scenes involving the zombie version of Professor Miller using a model cast of the actor's face that had been created earlier for makeup and special effects.
Here's the catch: The four-hour-long series is so underrated it's surprisingly hard to get your hands on. It was hugely popular when it was first released and came out on a two-disc DVD, but never got released on Blu-ray and is *yet* to make an appearance on any streaming sites. But it’s worth digging around the Internet for if you love old-school horror flicks. And Stephen King.
