It was scary and the story was there. Rental-material.
Well, it has been quite some time since I watched a horror movie that really frightened me. This movie is not the kind that will make you go crazy of fear but it's really cool.
I really liked the storyline and the acting of the actors involved. I loved the little girl and I was really amazed by Sam Rockwell and did enjoy the fact that there were funny scenes within a thriller movie.
Jared Harris was also brilliant and I really really liked his character. It was a fun Sunday afternoon in the movies with a movie that will hardly make you jump out of your seat, but it won't also keep you uninterested like others of the specific genre.
One thing I did not like was that towards the end the director kind of took it too far at some point, making you think that "ok, this is too much" which is something that should not happen in this kind of movies when you're struggling to remain into the storyline, without thinking that in real life, these things would not be possible..
Overall, don't spend money to go at the movies for this, if you have other options. Waiting out for a DVD rental is the best option.
