Decently enjoyable but still with some problems, 22 January 2013
Author: GL84 from Los Angeles, Ca

After moving out to a secluded family-owned house in the wilderness, a woman begins to fear that the ghost of an ancestor is looking to be reborn through her unborn baby and tries to save herself before succumbing to a curse that will enable it to happen.

An overall decent enough effort, as there's some pretty good stuff here and a couple utterly aggravating ones. The initial mystery of the house and how it's built up are fairly well-done, with some classic old-school style hauntings of things reappearing or doing something they're not supposed to be doing just off-screen from their viewpoint or the old standard of a figure dashing by in the background, but as well the unraveling mystery of what's going on inside makes for some really good stuff. That makes the finale pretty interesting with it's action sequences of trying to keep the possessed figure out of the house, but the film ultimately suffers due to the utterly aggravating and totally irritating tactic of trying to force the fact that behavioral change is the main selling point of something horrific or terrifying in the course of the film, and instead of generating fear, it instills anger at him for the treatment inflicted upon her and annoyance at her for putting up with it to begin with. That also leaves a large segment of the middle of the film totally devoid of action, lowering it's momentum and pacing somewhat, but overall it's still not a bad time at all.

Rated R: Graphic Language, Violence, Nudity and a mild sex scene.
