Average Film Thats Been Done A Million Times, With No Resolution
19 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

You've seen this before, family suffers a terrible tragedy and moves into a new neighborhood. The town has several creepy and odd individuals that talk about the house the family is moving into. After settling into the house thats up for sale, they begin to experience odd things that terrorize them, and there is nothing the cops can do, just some kids trying to scare the newcomers they say. Unfortunately the film is just that, thin and has been done over and over. And with a sub-par ending that left me disappointing and unfulfilled. Who or what is it? And why is this happening? You'll never know.

The only redeeming qualities is the beautiful scenery, but to be fair nature doesn't need good directing to be beautiful. The sound score is also ok, adding some tensions to the predictable scare scenes. The characters are very one dimensional and only a few actors do a respectable job with their character. Don't get me wrong, some actors do an ok job, but most of the acting is very averagely performed. The scare scenes, while averagely done, will be scary to some light weights, but for horror veterans, you will not be tense and see it coming because the film is a regurgitation of countless other films.

Over all I wouldn't recommend it, I know you can find a better film to watch.
