Review: (#1) The design has a creepy element with the hands, but the rest of the design isn’t that interesting or creative and black backgrounds are seldom the right way to go when there’s nothing in it.

(#2) We’ve seen this design so often before and while it still somewhat works, it is ultimately old hat.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: We have seen oh so many films with similar subjects. This film does a decent enough job making the whole feel at least somewhat different, but that closing fright in the trailer has become an unnecessary choice that everyone knows is coming. I’m even tempted to start deducting a letter grade just for that kind of cheese.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
