Movie Reviews

Reviewed by westsideschl 2 / 10


"Inspired by real events." Nothing was stated as to what the "real" was. Maybe it's just people living in a house is the "inspired". Very formula & seen before copied from other similar horror scripts. Lone female going down into a dark basement; child seen being dragged into a room; doors open & close on their own; screams; years later new victims move into the house - repeat. The usual child sees & plays with new "friend", and draws strange image. The usual strange sounds. The usual dad's away, and doesn't believe his wife who then makes dumb mistakes. The usual computer search of house backstory.

Feels like it was shot without a script

I think they just gathered actors in a room and said: "You've seen horror movies, right? So let's film a horror. We don't have a script, though, but you'll figure something out"

I would not even call it a movie, it's just a compilation of familiar scenes from other horrors, without any logical connection.

Even jumpscares don't work, they are either cut too early, or ruined by PlayStation 2 graphics.

You don't really expect well-written characters or logic from a horror, but you expect something. Just give me some vague explanation about "evil" possessing the house and make all the characters dumb, that's good enough for me, but in this movie things just happen. Actions and knowledge of the characters don't affect anything.

It is hard to explain, but this movie feels like something generated by a neural network. It feels familiar, and you can recognize some parts, but it just doesn't make any sense in general

No one reacts as a normal person

Well... take a familiar scene from any horror movie. Then make the actors do the opposite of what any normal person would do. Repeat for the whole movie. The End.

Leave a kid in a dark room. Kid stays in the room without any protests - in the dark Kid gets to meet a ghost Next day do the same thing again Walk around in the dark, without turning on the light Make the whole movie too dark, even in the day time Do the sound design so a knock inside a wall sounds like it was just beside you Repeat.
