I love how the movie starts off normal then slowly takes us into the realm of Horror. This type of genre "good child whom is really evil" is starting to be a bit over done and well traversed. Be that as it may, this movie was decent. Acting is superb, Rene of course can really do no wrong.
The child actress is phenonmenal as well (where do they find these kids?)
The introduction of the supernatural feels organic, I was fine with more or less everything.
When I think of this movie, I think of a diet version of "The Ring".
Not too bad. I'd give it 3.5 stars but Amazon doesn't do the 1/2 star thing so I gave it 4 stars.
Cooper and McShane are exceptional, and Zellweger does well with a sparse script. She does not have a whole lot to work with here, but she makes it work, and the film is just good enough to keep you entertained for 90 minutes. This movie is a cross between "Orphan," "The Ring," and "The Omen," although it is not quite as good as those films. It would be a good rental or even a worthwhile purchase for fans of this genre, though, as long as you are not expecting too much. Sometimes, even though something has been done before and you kind of know how things are going to turn out, it can still be fun getting there. And while I would stop short of calling this film "fun," I found it to be mildly disturbing in some parts, and genuinely entertaining in most others.
However, my wife really liked the movie.
The acting was superb. Jodelle Ferland was excellent, with the highlight being the scene with Rene's smug boyfriend. "How did you answer number 12?" Sweet.
There were no great twists in the plot, not really a surprise ending. These were really needed to distinguish this movie from other demon kid movies. Overall I would go 4 1/2 stars on the strength of the performances and good dialouge. Not for parents with 10 year old girls who think they are possessed.
BUT, here's the thing: Those poor parents of Lilith have been trying to do her in for years and it turns out she ("it") CAN JUST BE LOCKED IN A CAR AND DROWNED???!!! Thank goodness Lilith's dad is dead or I imagine he would kill himself AGAIN once he found out how easy it turned out to be.
I found myself wondering how Emily's life would be after the movie ends: her house is burned down, she'll probably never get another job, even if she manages to stay out of prison once the police find the remains of whatever's in the car after they haul it out of the water. Ouch.
I would definately recomment this movie.
