There is more mood than matter to be sampled in “The Disappointments Room,” a spooky psychological thriller — or, perhaps, a psychological thriller with spooks — that is initially intriguing but ultimately, unfortunately, lives down to its title. Director D.J. Caruso (“Disturbia,” “The Salton Sea”) and scriptwriter Wentworth Miller do a reasonably efficient job of setting the table for this drama about a troubled woman who unlocks (and unearths) dark secrets after moving into a secluded and long-abandoned country home. Somewhere around the two-thirds mark, however, the movie skids off the rails as the storyline becomes at once less mysterious and more illogical, raising the suspicion that, midway through the filming, everyone involved simply tossed aside the script and started making things up as they went along.

Caruso's The Disappointments Room, originally from Yahoo: When a mother and her young son move into their rural dream house, they accidentally unlock a hidden room in the attic and unleash unprecedented horror.

A gleeful throwback to a genre that unfortunately jumped the shark years ago, Detour harkens back to the ’90s noir that ultimately met its death with one too many Quentin Tarantino knock-offs. Detour is not that. It’s instead a playful shape-shifter (using a split-screen device) that offers a slight element of misdirection to its wild, winding road of unexpected encounters, moral decisions, and a portrait of white-trash Americana. This is lurid film noir at its best.
Thrust into this world is law student Harper (Tye Sheridan), a nice rich kid whose mother lies on her deathbed. He theorizes that his stepfather, Vincent (Stephen Moyer), is responsible for a car crash that’s left her on life support. He’s an architect who frequently travels from California to Vegas “for work” and first devises a plan to get him busted at the airport. In a moment of desperation, he shoots »
