I can't think of any redeeming qualities of the movie other than the color processing was nice and high-contrast, and the orchestral score, while completely ineffective, was well performed.
Other than that, take several random forgettable actors from the last forgettable horror remake you've seen, put them in this, kill them in sequential order and you have the Evil Dead remake.
After years of Exorcist/possession, "kids in the woods" movies post-Friday the 13th, I think we've covered all the ground that needs to be covered. If there was anything to explore beyond that, "Cabin in the Woods" did so.
This was a waste of time and energy for all parties involved.
