At first, the ghosts appear friendly, moving objects around the house to the amusement of everyone, but things turn nasty when they kidnap the youngest daughter.

Adams will play a parapsychologist called in to help the family find their daughter and identify the supernatural forces at work in their home.

Beatrice Straight played the part in the original.

Adams is repped by Gersh, Peg Donegan at Framework Entertainment, and Sloane Offer Weber & Dern.
