Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
the only thing you have to fear in this house is falling asleep
After reclusive writer Samantha Ballard hasn't gotten in touch with her brother Anthony in months, he along with her publisher, his assistant, and the previous home-owners daughter all decide to go up to the secluded house that she had recently bought. But the house, as always is the case in these type of movies, is haunted and they, along with Sam's husband and his girl whom haven't been invited, appear to be in for one hell of a night.
And the viewer is in for one hell of a night of...of utter boredom. I'm really sorry but this movie just didn't really do it for. Trust me, I've since worse low-budget horror films than this one. A lot worse...by far. But at the same time the story didn't snap or crackle for me (nor did it pop, by the way). The deaths were too quasi-laughable and didn't really fit into the tone the film was trying to have. And talking of the acting caliber, well that's like shooting fish in a barrel, so I'll digress.
My Grade: D+
Eye Candy: Meredith Barnett gets topless briefly
