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.

Trivia

(at around 1h 16 mins) During the climax, immediately following when the power goes out in the house, there is a single, out of focus, frame of Hunter crawling in the street that quickly flashes on and off screen. See more »

Goofs

When Kristi is alone after Ali and Daniel take the dog to the vet, there is a hard cut. Within this hard cut from 12am to about 1am, all the pictures on the wall near the stairs have shifted and the baby stroller downstairs has been moved. However, this can be explained by a lighting change where the shadows on the wall from the pictures and the stroller changed positions - not the items themselves. See more »

Dull
8 November 2011 | by ggjggjSee all my reviews

I had not seen the first one of these films and i will not be watching the third one that's for sure. Do yourselves a favour and skip the first 70 minutes of this movie; better still, do yourselves a bigger favour and don't even put in the DVD player in the first place. Unfortunately i have to write 10 lines to be able to post this review. I find it very hard indeed to write a 10 line review on this movie as it's just so dull and boring to watch. One thing i did notice is they say this cost £3 million to make it. Oh come on, this could have been made for the price of 3 cheap video cameras and the actors wages for one day. oh yes and the hiring of the acting dog, she was good.
