I give kudos to Thomas Dekker for writing and directing a layered psychological drama (with horror elements) that I found utterly compelling. I'm so grateful that I took a chance on it... because I hadn't read or heard anything about it. I just recognized some of the names on the cast/crew list... and now, in the afterglow, I feel like I won a cinematic jackpot.

Rory Culkin, Lin Shaye and Britt Robertson all had Oscar-worthy moments in the clarity of their emotional expressions. I must also give mention to Daveigh Chase and Louis Hunter who did fine jobs as well.

This movie won't be for everyone, unfortunately. But I think people who appreciate good, methodical, dramatic storytelling (and those who understand how torment can warp the psyche) should find this flick an immensely satisfying piece of art.
