Story intro

When a suburban father is killed by being hit by a car whose driver appeared to have had a heart attack, his family struggles to come to terms with their loss. Unemployed and financially unable to support herself and her teenage son Logan, Naomi agrees to move into her sister's secluded mountain chalet until it sells. Upon moving into the beautiful home, Naomi and Logan encounter their elderly neighbor, Martha, who behaves strangely, and Chris, a pleasant store clerk. During the open house days on Sunday, Naomi and Logan are required to leave the property at breakfast and return after 5 p.m. A series of strange occurrences begin. Objects are moved or disappear, the house phone rings but nobody speaks, the pilot to the hot water tank repeatedly gets shut off, and there are unexplained noises. One night, Logan sees a car idling in the driveway. Outside, he finds Martha, who behaves erratically. Martha later alludes to her deceased husband being alive despite previously claiming her husband was dead. A repairman is called to inspect the faulty hot water tank. He reveals that Martha's husband really did die and Martha has Alzheimer's, leading to her confusion. Naomi is crushed when she finds a photo of the family crumpled up in the trash. The repairman finds Logan's missing phone near the water heater, leading Naomi to believe that Logan had been messing with her. The two have a heated argument and he denies messing with her and destroying the photo. That night, it is revealed that there is someone else lurking in the home. One day, Naomi and Logan find that their home has been broken into and someone set up a candle lit dinner on the table, but the police found nothing. Unable to afford a hotel, the mother and son are forced to remain in the house.
