The Haunting of Whaley House is a 2012 horror movie directed by Jose Prendes and starring Alex Arleo, Arielle Brachfeld and Stephanie Greco.
Whaley House is a local tourist attraction. It is supposed to be haunted. Penny(Greco) works as a your guide for the house along with Bethany(Lynn Lowry) who knows a lot about the house. While they are giving a tour one of the tourists has a mysterious reaction and has to go to hospital. Bethany warns Penny never to go inside the house at night. Of course, Penny and her friends decide to go there for a look at night! A psychic called Keith Drummond(Howard McNair) comes along to see if he can meet some ghosts. Penny and her friends look around the house. The tourist from earlier on comes back to the house from the hospital and kills herself because voices from the house tell her to.
One of Pennys pals called Ray(Jason Owsley) has a lot of ghost testing gear with him and he wants to get proof of the haunted house. The group have a seance. Penny asks the spirits some questions and there is some presence there. They all wander through the house looking around. Keith tells them that there are ghosts in the house. He tries to talk to them. One of the group is frightened by the ghosts and falls down the stairs to her death. They decide not to tell the cops. They can't leave the house anyway.
It turns out that there is a portal in the house and there are evil spirits trying to get them. Penny is the one that the ghosts want and the others in the group are killed one by one until she is left. They succeed in killing her and she is trapped in the house. Only Bethany realises that she is there....
This movie was okay, but not great. Howard McNair who played the psychic, was woeful in the part. His part was ridiculous. When you see the movie, you will understand. It was actually laughable in parts.
I wouldn't watch this again. I will give it a 3/10.
