Plot Summary:
"The successful children's writer Claire Holloway is troubled by scary nightmares and is under psychological treatment. While working out watching television, she sees the landscape of the Rose Marsh Farm in the Westmoreland County, and she notes that the farmhouse is linked to her nightmares. She decides to spend her vacation in the farm, which is located nearby a swamp, and she is haunted by the ghosts of a little girl and a teenage boy inside the house. She is befriended by the local publisher and historian Noah Pitney but after a sequence of disturbing visions, she decides to contact the paranormal consultant Geoffry Hunt. Together, they investigate the mystery and disclose a tragedy that happened in the farm about twenty years ago."

Gabrielle Anwar stars as Claire Holloway, a successful children’s author (think J.K. Rowling) who is drawn to a small town after a succession of freaky nightmares. Once Claire arrives in town her dreams worsen and she begins to see a ghostly boy and a young girl in the house she is renting. Claire contacts paranormal investigator Hunt (Forest Whitaker) who agrees to help her uncover the dark secret the residents have been hiding for years.

The film starts out exceptionally well, and it has to be said, looks absolutely stunning throughout due to high production values, excellent set design and gorgeous cinematography. The cast do great jobs, and there are a lot of really creepy moments here too.

The Marsh is not without its problems however, and they are mainly pacing issues and the story. Every hoary old spook house cliché is checked off along the way, and it takes its time in doing so. That said the film is still full of interesting camera angles and great effects work to keep viewers entertained.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Whilst The Marsh offers relatively nothing new to the haunted house sub-genre, it is a well acted and beautifully realized addition to the straight to DVD horror boom.
