A young couple buy an old house in Jerome which used to be a brothel. The husband commits suicide and the wife, Julianne (played by Serena Scott Thomas), attempts to come to terms with her loss and modernize the house. She 'finds the building is still inhabited by the ghosts of prostitutes' and 'that she is being stalked by Death himself (Bruce Payne)'.[1]



John Reid, who reviewed the film for the Sedona Red Rock News, noted "the density of atmosphere and the intensity of the actors and crew palpable on the set".[2] David Kanowsky, who reviewed the film for Kudos, stated that it was "a very fine ghost story without horror".[3] A contributor to the Independent Film Quarterly described the film as "an erotic indie version of Inception".[4]
