typical and awful
30 June 2017 | by vpeouSee all my reviews

I don't like to write reviews. But I've watched so many terrible horrors, I feel like I have to say something.

This movie is gawd awful. Everything that is wrong with current horror is in this movie - amplified; false jump scare, forgettable characters with no intelligence spitting nonsensical lines, unnecessary special effects (the house has a Star Trek force field, dude really?), it's annoyingly loud, unimaginative and confusing non-existing story line.

This movie made me physically mad.

I had to reward myself with ice cream having endured a terrible experience called Darkness Rising.

Save yourself the time, skip it.
