Storyline

Daniel Rey along with his wife, Kristi; daughter, Ali; toddler son, Hunter, and their dog, move to Carlsbad, California. A few days later their residence is broken into, however, nothing appears to be missing. In order to prevent re-occurrences, they install a number of security cameras that will record everything on a DVR. After they hire a Spanish-speaking nanny to look after Hunter, she informs them that there is something wrong in their house and performs prayers, much to the chagrin of Daniel, who lets her go. He will subsequently regret this decision as more inexplicable and strange incidents occur, with Ali concluding, after a research, that their house may be possessed by a demonic entity.

Utter and complete garbage
6 November 2010 | by Shakor77See all my reviews

I really don't understand how people can enjoy this movie as it is complete trash. For long periods of time, virtually, nothing happens and the only things that does happen is completely underwhelming and only startles you because they use high volume sound and element of surprise, like someone jumping out of the dark, screaming.

And in the end you are left with wondering why you just spend, whatever length the movie is, watching it. Frankly there was several times I wanted to just leave because the movie was so terrible.

So do yourself a favour and just avoid this movie, it hints at being innovative but what it basically is a money grab as they spent minimum amount of money and then probably claim it is a psychological movie so it does not need any effects. But it is just plain awful...
