A young girl, Sally Hirst (Bailee Madison), moves in with her father Alex (Guy Pearce) and his girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes). Her father is renovating the house they live in, which he hopes to sell. Due to the fact that her mother recently abandoned her, Sally has become a distant child. Although Kim tries to befriend her, Sally alienates herself from her.
One day, Sally finds a hidden basement with a sealed fireplace. She finds herself drawn toward the fireplace, as she can hear voices that beg her to open it, promising friendship. Her father stops her before she can get the door completely open, but small goblin-like creatures escape, and begin to torment Sally at night.
As the days progress, Kim finds one of her dresses shredded. Shortly afterward, a teddy bear that Kim gave to Sally is found destroyed. Sally claims that someone (or something) else is to blame for these things, but her father does not believe her and is preoccupied with renovating the house. Kim, however, begins to believe her claims, as strange incidents occur more frequently.
Kim begins to delve into the history of the house to find that the previous owner's son went missing. Before his own disappearance, he ranted about small creatures dating back from the Stone Age that were known to kidnap people (usually children) for the purpose of replenishing their numbers. The man drew images of the creatures, and Kim finds that they match Sally's illustrations and descriptions.
Realizing the imminent danger, Kim attempts to get Sally out of the house, and stay in a hotel, despite Alex's objections. However, before they leave the power is cut and they are trapped in the house at the mercy of the creatures.
