(at around 40 mins) During the sequence in which Madison is taken, the older daughter is trapped in the basement, yet comes running out of the front door screaming that her brother was grabbed by the tree. She would not have seen this happen and would have no knowledge of it. See more »

Not nearly as effective as the original.
Director Gil Kenan is relatively new in the director's chair, and unfortunately it shows. This modernized telling of the classic original is neither scary nor convincing. The acting was merely ok and the effects so-so. I'd rather watch the original ten times over than to watch this remake a second time.
