A guest house on the beach... Longwood Inn...

People come here to get away from their jobs and everyday stress, just to relax, bask in the sun,breathe in the salty air from the sea....

But, they are oblivious to the fact that the guest house is haunted.

Haunted by the ghost of Joan Winters, a young woman in her mid-twenties, murdered 25 yrs ago,by her own sister and grandmother,with which she was forced to live after her parent's accidental death....

The Cold Room- The guest house had an attic, which used to be Joan's room, where she died. The room was named that way because it was said that no matter how high you cranked up the heater in winter, it was always freezing cold. In the summer, not even the harsh beating of the sun's rays upon it, could make it warm....

The guest house was formerly owned by Mary Longwood, one of Emily Johnson's best friends, She died of cancer a year ago, and left her the property. She had no living relatives or husband.

Emily and Ryan Johnson were a couple in their mid fifties,whose two sons: Mathew and Jonathan, had married and left to live their own lives...

Emily and Ryan decided to fix Longwood Inn up before the summer and open the doors once more ( The inn had been closed for more than 5 years, due to Mary's illness).

The Johnsons soon hired a crew to work on the inns renovation.

The Johnson's helped out and soon found themselves in the attic(The Cold Room).

As they were cleaning they found a wooden chest. Inside the chest were old mementos and fotos dated back to the seventies and eighties, Pictures of two litle girls with their parents and grandparents, Then fotographs of the girls older with only a grandmother, a stern looking matronly woman. Emily, noted that the younguest girl had a forn lorn look on her face, her eyes dull and lifeless...

Searching for more things, they stumbled across an old diary. It belonged to Joan Winters. Emily takes it with her and reads it. She reads about Joan's sad life. Then, when the attic was finished( they turned it into a study), Emily finds out that Joan died in mysterious circumstances. After reading the last entry on the diary she notes that Joan wants revenge, revenge on her sister and grandmother for putting her through hell. There is so much anger and violence that Emily has nightmares that night...

What the Johnson's don't know is that their cleaning and fixing the attic has awakened

Joan's ghost, and she's thirsty for revenge!!!

They rent the place to four (four memebered) families. Things start to happen, lives are threatened, people actually die... It's up to the Johnson's to stop the ghost befor all hell breaks lose!!!
