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. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Did You Know?

Goofs

The newspaper article titled "Tragedy at Rose Marsh farm" is a string of nearly the same sentences that describe the accident (a second iteration begins on line 16, a third on line 25). The entire article is poorly worded, even for a news report at that time. For example, in the second iteration, the article indicates "Denmen goes nuts." The props department obviously failed to construct a realistic article. See more »

Quotes

Geoffry Hunt: My father used to say, "Hunt," - he called me Hunt... - he'd say, "Hunt, you can dodge the draft, can cheat on your taxes, but never desert a damsel in distress."

"The Marsh" works as a typical, haunted house story. There are those that have criticised it, but really, what did you expect? Starring Gabrielle Anwar. WHO? Oh, that pretty french girl who was in that submarine movie. Right. It's a B-movie, people! So don't expect too much and you may be pleasantly surprised. Forest Whitaker, pre-King of Scotland, provides a shot of star value and basically holds the movie together. The special effects are good and the best thing about "The Marsh" is that's so pretty! The house is pretty, the female lead is pretty, hell, even the ghost is pretty! Its like a Normal Rockwell painting that's been messed with. Quite cool, just check your brain at the door and you'll be fine. :)
