Christine Brown (Alison Lohman) is an ambitious L.A. loan officer with a charismatic boyfriend, Professor Clay Dalton (Justin Long). Life is good until the mysterious Mrs Ganush (Lorna Raver) arrives at the bank to beg for an extension on her home loan. Christine instinctively wants to give the old woman a break but is in a dilemma because if she denies the extension this will impress her boss, Mr Jacks (David Paymer), and maybe get a promotion. Christine fatefully chooses the latter, shaming Mrs Ganush and dispossessing her of her home.
In response, the old woman vengefully places the powerful curse of the Lamia on Christine, transforming her life into a living hell. Haunted by an evil spirit and misunderstood by a sceptical boyfriend, she seeks the aid of seer Rham Jas (Dileep Rao) to save her soul from eternal damnation. To help the shattered Christine return her life to normal, the psychic sets her on a frantic course to reverse the spell. As evil forces close in, Christine must face the unthinkable: how far will she go to break free of the curse?
