Plot: Julia is a last-minute replacement in a theatre production of the Henry James classic The Turn Of The Screw. Arriving late at night, Julia must immediately go on stage and perform a dress rehearsal to an empty auditorium.
As she interacts with other characters, an increasingly terrified Julia begins to suspect that it's not the fictitious house that's haunted, but the theatre itself.
