The Others by A. Amenabar 

The story takes place just after the WW2 and deals with Grace Stewart who lives ,with her son, daugther and three servants, in a remote mansion on a desolated island. Her two children cannot be exposed to the sunlight because of a rare illness, thus the household lives in constant dimness.
Not surprisingly her children starts to hear people walking and noise as if some one was moving furniture from one place to another.

Grace, pious Catholic, dismiss what they say but she has to admit the sudden departure of the former servants, the unexpected arrival of the new ones, the estranged face of her husband back from the war and doors slamming on their onw, right on her face do indicate some others are up to something unholy.
