Really bad: not scary at all
16 November 2015 | by elizrugSee all my reviews

This film has a decent plot but it falls apart because of all the film's other faults. We all love a good spooky tale about witches and ghosts. It's a shame the acting is so bad. It's almost painful to watch and I wasn't able to even finish the film.

I actually got to the climactic ending and turned it off. There are too many "dramatic" pauses where the camera is focused on the blank faces of the characters. There is no sense of "realness" at all--not in the dialogue, not in the actions. Obviously no one can say anything about realism in regards to how to live in a situation with hauntings like this, but there is either a lack of expression or exaggerated over-expression by the actors. The actress who plays the daughter looks older than the one who plays the mother. Characters who are petulant (and I'm not talking about the kid) with absurd lines makes this cringe-worthy. The scares are boring and trite.

Save your time, see another movie.
