Review: If you’ve seen the trailer, this concept fits eerily perfectly. If you aren’t, then it doesn’t have nearly as much emotional impact.

Review: Stealing heavily from genre tropes, this trailer hacks its way through cheap theatrics and lame scares to arrive at a film that looks wholly uninteresting. It does however suggest the idea of: what if one of these films where a “supernatural” presence follows a child home actually resolved that the kid was mentally disturbed and had conjured everything out of his own mind. Now that would be something truly inventive.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
