    it's not that bad... but not that good either

    Interesting premise that might have gone well except it sort of turns into every other haunting/possession film you've seen in the past and therein is the problem. It had potential with the autistic child being more tuned in/susceptible to the supernatural but the plot becomes ho-hum because there really wasn't anything new to it other than that. I thought the alternate ending was actually better than the theatrical version. Okay film if you aren't looking for anything new. Would I recommend this? Ehhh... it's hard to say. It wasn't bad just fairly predictable. If you like this kind of thing go for it, just look for it on sale or in the bargain bin.

    KEVIN BACON , RADA MITCHELL head the horror tale of evil ancient Indian spirits released by their autistic son. 5 rocks taken from a hidden cave release them into the family's home. Suspicious events plague the family who are struggling with their own personal problems. But when events escalate to deadly levels , they bring in a spiritual healer and then the real battle begins. The suspense keeps you guessing about what's next and who's in danger. Good story , scary , good effects and character interaction. Should see this one.

    An Acceptable Movie

    I don't usually watch scary movies involving children as I am disappointed in the way they are depicted for the cheap thrills and scares. This movie, which I bought with some reservation, was no exception to that rule. I am a fan of the Father figure though and I think this movie was below his abilities as an actor. Nevertheless, I watched the movie and was mildly entertained.

    It is not a 'hardcore; horror that is likely to make you seek therapy for the rest of your life, but it is not dull or unwatchable either. The production is good, the acting is good, and it is the kind of film you can watch when you just fancy a 'movie night' with friends or family. I actually enjoyed this supernatural thriller!

    Eli Roth does it again. With twisted, and legendary tale of what NOT to do when someone knocks on your door and your alone. Keanue Reeves and his two Vixens do an amazing job making you flip flop in this adventure of never do what you shouldn't when wife is away...

    Lack of Scares

    Standard chiller has a decent performance by Kevin Bacon but that can't save an otherwise run of the mill horror movie. Cheap jump scares abound. The disc also features a collection of deleted scenes and a unintentionally hilarious, wisely cut alternate ending

    I didn't think this was bad at all. It does take some time to really get going, but once it does, it's pretty good. It kept my interest throughout, and it has some excitement to it. I would recommend this to anyone who likes thrilling films. It's worth a watch.

    Wasn't sure about this movie. Wasn't sure to give it a thumbs up or down? I guess if you had nothing else to do, this would suffice. Last attempt for Kevin Bacon to make a move at success in a movie? Meh? Who knows?
