What is this movie?

I remember years ago watching a movie about a little girl who complained to her father about hearing a scratching and shuffling noise in her closet every night. So the father decides maybe it's mice and he lines the baseboard of her small closet with mouse traps and cheese to take care of the issue.

The next night, the girls sits up, listening to the gradually growing sounds until finally one trap snaps and she opens the door to discover the cheese hasn't budge and all of the traps are snapped and still exactly where they were left.

Frightened, she backs up against her bed and something grabs her ankle and drags her under.

There are so many movies where children are afraid of their closets... Could you remember anything else? Even a small detail can help separate the right one from the others.

A young girl sent to live with her father and his new girlfriend believes that she has released creatures from a sealed ash pit in the basement of her new home.
