It all begins when Nick (Sam Troughton), a kind and sensitive graphic design student, having just moved in with four other students removes an old journal from a spirit clock - a bridge between our world and the next. Jenny (Billie Piper), a good-natured girl hiding from the psychic powers inherited from her recently deceased mother, explains to her housemates an array of paranormal effects which they discover in the old mansion: the spirit clock, the spirit catcher and the planchette. When Tom (Luke Mably) a smart and cocky drug dealer, Adele (Emma Catherwood), his feisty and sexual girlfriend, and Nick decide to play with the planchette, which works like a ouija board, strange and personal messages are relayed. Tina (Alsou), a beautiful, exotic and mysterious girl, hovers on the sidelines quietly apart from the rest of the group.
Mobile phones stop working. Mysterious noises are heard. When Tom's stash disappears and a frantic house search ensues, Jenny begins to see things in the house - shadows of torches on the walls and an angry mob in Edwardian clothes who appear to torture a man. The spirits pit the students against each other as we discover the dark secrets of their pasts.
Nick and Jenny return to where it all began and explore the secrets which the old journal holds. There they discover the love affair between a young foreign widow and her African servant. As Jenny has a vision of the affair's tragic end, Nick discovers that the last entry in the journal was exactly one hundred years ago.
The mysterious message which Jenny receives from her dead mother "someone must die" suddenly makes sense "a killer for a killer". The living nightmare deepens as Jenny, Nick and Tina try to escape the house only to find the exit leads straight back inside. The boundaries between the real world and the afterlife are no longer clear and as time runs out, they must find a way to escape the Spirit Trap.
