29 March 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saw the preview. It was weird, but I liked it. It was kind of 1950's. Dead Silence did the same kind of retro feel. I like older films- The Bad Seed.

I particularly liked that the name of God had power (unlike most exorcist scenes). It was 'spooky' in a fun way... not a 'Saw' or "Hills Have Eyes" a bloody gory mess. It is the kind of movie you could watch, jump once in a while, and then not have night terrors about.

It took a couple of minutes to move at first but it ended well.

Luke Goss is awesome. The Auntie was very strange...she played the role well. The father figure was a weak character so I can see why men wouldn't like him. Identifying with him would expose their own vulnerability.
