Review: (#1) Only minimally creepy, this French design is rather uninspired. (#2) That background is frustrating, but solid title design and an utterly fascinating central image that fits thematically with the film itself is a nice touch.

(#3) There’s a little more fright in the eyes, but the lack of background details and the fuzzy/pixely appearance aren’t selling points.

Trailer Rating: C

Review: A concept, which at its core seems interesting, ultimately feels like a wasted idea that gives itself over to cheap thrills and overused scare tactics, none of which are even in the trailer itself.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
