Jan DeBont (SPEED, TWISTER) remakes Robert Wise's subtle and terrifying 1963 haunted house tale as a computer-effects laden thrill ride. A professor (Neeson) and three subjects (Zeta-Jones and indie heroes Taylor and Wilson) spend an night in an old house with sinister secrets for the sake of a sleep disorder study...but no one gets much sleep. Based on Shirley Jackson's novel.
