A bold, unforgiving film, which left me SHOOK

My prediction is that most people will hate this movie, because it does not set out simply to please the audience or to exist for the mere purpose of being entertaining. It's heavy-handed psychological horror. It's a slow burner. Things will happen in the plot that will upset you. Not EVERYTHING about this movie worked for me, but I still liked it quite a lot - especially thinking back on it.

Riley Keough is one of my favorite new-school actresses working right now, and she fully brings believability to her plagued character in this - she keeps you guessing. It was amazing to see Alicia Silverstone in this. It was kind of a shocking change of pace for her, especially after not seeing her for so long. The children really did a great job in this film as well, maintaining the somber tone.

This movie has one of the best setups I have seen for a psychological horror film in a long time. The first half hour sets the viewer up for absolute disaster, and, well, what do you think happens? When the movie was over, I left feeling SHOOK! I felt so uneasy, literally a bit shaky! The viewer receives no forgiveness! This is bold horror filmmaking - much better than 80% of contemporary horror. If you have patience and a taste for genuine darkness, you may find yourself very pleased with this film.
