Review: (#1) While the image is visually disconcerting being upside down with an unnaturally suspended child in the swing, it doesn’t do enough to sell the story since it tells you almost nothing about it. (#2-#5) The purpose of these upside down character posters isn’t obvious, only two of them feature a figure in the pupil and all of them are too close-up to be visually stylish.

Trailer Rating: C+

Review: So many supernatural horror films take similar tacks in their design style that unless the content can outshine those drawbacks, the film ends up looking dull as a result. That’s the unfortunate result for this film.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
