It is scheduled to be distributed by Paramount Pictures.

Plot

Social worker Emily Jenkins (Renée Zellweger) is assigned to investigate the family of 10-year-old Lilith Sullivan (Jodelle Ferland), as her grades in school have declined and an emotional rift with her parents emerges. Emily suspects that the parents have been abusing Lilith, and proposes to her department to take the child away from her parents' custody. Emily's fears are confirmed when Lilith's parents try to kill her by roasting her in the oven at their home. Emily saves Lilith with the help of Detective Mike Barron (Ian McShane). Emily is assigned to take care of Lilith until a suitable foster family comes when her parents are placed under a mental institution.

Not too long after Lilith moves in, strange things begin to happen around Emily and her work. A boy named Diego suddenly murders his parents one morning, and Detective Barron informs Emily that somebody called Diego from her house the night before the crime. As she is suspected to be involved in the incident, Lilith undergoes a psychiatric evaluation by Emily's boyfriend Douglas J. Ames (Bradley Cooper). During the session, however, Lilith turns the evaluation around, asking Douglas what his fears are and taunting him with her own threats. That night, after receiving a strange phone call in his apartment, Douglas is haunted by the sight of a swarm of hornets coming out of his body. He is overcome by his childhood fear of hornets until he injures himself to death in his bathroom.

Emily gradually becomes paranoid over having Lilith in her home, so she heads to the mental asylum for answers from Lilith's parents. They tell her that Lilith is a demon who feeds on human kindness, and that they tried to kill her in an attempt to save themselves. Lilith's father tells Emily she must kill her and the only way to do so is to get her to sleep. Shortly after Emily leaves the asylum, both parents die of unusual circumstances.

Detective Barron initially thinks Emily should seek psychiatric help, but is later on convinced when he receives a strange phone call in his home from Emily's cell phone, which is being used by Lilith. He arms himself at the police precinct to aid Emily in handling Lilith, but dies by his own hand when Lilith uses his fear of dogs against him. That night, Emily has Lilith drink tea spiked with sleeping pills. While Lilith is asleep, Emily sets her home on fire. Firefighters promptly appear to extinguish the fire, but Emily is shocked when Lilith appears next to her.

Police offer to escort Emily and Lilith to a temporary place to sleep. As Emily is following the police cars, she suddenly takes a different route and drives her car at a high speed, hoping to bring fear to Lilith. She then drives the car off the pier. As the car sinks, Emily struggles to lock Lilith in the trunk by folding the rear seats against her. She then exits the car, but as she swims away, Lilith suddenly grabs her leg after punching a hole on the car's left tail light section. Emily struggles to break free until Lilith finally lets go as the car continues to sink. She climbs back ashore, relieved to be rid of Lilith
