Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

Muddy footprints and straw dolls betray the presence of an ancient evil in The New Daughter. Author John James (Kevin Costner) has brought his innocent young son Sam (Gattlin Griffith Changeling) and sullen teenage daughter Louisa (Ivana Baquero, Pan's Labyrinth) to a new home to start their lives over after James's wife abandoned them. The house, of course, is huge and in the middle of an overgrown forest--and the discovery of a strange mound nearby doesn't make things any less spooky. Louisa's adolescent hormones practically beg for supernatural possession, and before long she's covered in mud, breaking out in a prickly rash, and pushing girls down the stairway at school. There's nothing unexpected in The New Daughter, but that doesn't mean it's ineffective; Spanish director Luis Berdejo makes good use of ambient sound, well-timed jolts, and Baquero's porcelain-doll features. Costner seems a little out of his element, but when he's faced with some horrible choices, he captures the torment of a father who fears he can't save his children. As is often the case, the more we see, the less scary it is, so it's good that Berdejo holds back on the creepy-crawlies for as long as he can. Horror fans will find much to enjoy in The New Daughter. --Bret Fetzer

4.0 out of 5 stars FEW SURPRISES FOR THIS ONE May 18, 2010
Format:DVD
As one gets older, you have the chance to watch great actors suddenly fall from grace. Some do so simply by getting older. Others do so by being put into movies that offer them up as the best part of the film. Such is the case with the release this week of THE NEW DAUGHTER starring Kevin Costner.

Costner plays John James, a recent divorcee who has moved his children to a rural town called Mercy in South Carolina. Son Sam (Gattlin Griffin) has no problems with the move. But daughter Louisa (Ivanna Banquero) is the typical troublesome teen, taking her anger out on dad while honestly feeling as if her mother has abandoned the entire family.

The James family has moved into a fairly large house, the stately two story southern white house with a large front porch. Here, John hopes to get back on track writing once more. The kids find the place incredibly boring and go exploring the grounds. Its there that they come across something odd, a mound in the woods nearby that seems to hold a mysterious fascination for Louisa. Gee, what are the odds that something mysterious will involve the mound?

As the kids begin to adapt to their new locale and new school, Louisa finds herself picked on by one of the girls in her class. Not one to start anything, the incident goes unreported. But anyone who's seen a film of this sort knows that the girl will eventually get what's coming to her.

As the film progresses, Louisa begins to act stranger with each passing day. Sleepwalking that leaves tracks of dirt and mud through that house as she wanders to the mound, covered in dirt when she comes home and more lead John to suspect something just isn't right.

Format:Blu-ray
A lot of reviewers here and elsewhere are having a go at Costner for this movie and I wonder what film have they been watching. Yes, this film is NOT like most of the present day horror movies which rely on graphic violence, sexy characters who all appear to lack common sense, predictable and weak storylines, and tons of special effects, yet is better for it as it relys on a deliberate pace which requires the audience to pay attention, suspense, an ever increasing sense of dread for the inevitability of the outcome, and good performances from the cast especially the two kids and Costner as the father.

The film deliberately eschews modern styles such as the bleached out look, over loud music that telegraphs how we must react, and fast cutting. It embraces a 70's style approach and the earlier slow pace is absolutely right for this film and in no way should put off the viewer as it all pays off in the second half.

Give this film a chance - you might be surprised.

The blu-ray disc replicates the rich colour palette and the warm tones of South Carolina accurately and I recommend the viewer to listen to the uncompressed pcm track which is better than the Dolby track. There is a an adequate commentary by the director, deleted scenes as well as a standard behind-the scenes feature.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad, expected alot worse May 20, 2010
Format:Blu-ray
Well not expecting much from this movie, I was pleasantly surpised. Popped it in the blu ray, turned all the lights
off in the home theatre and I became quite drawn in to this movie.
The film maintains an eerie feel through out and definitely follows the " less you see, more you imagine" theme to it which I liked.
Would I buy this movie ? No...But felt it justified the rental $$.

At the end of the day a movie is supposed to entertain and this did.

Cheers

4.0 out of 5 stars MUCH BETTER THAN I EXPECTED May 17, 2010
Format:DVD
Limited theatrical release and then a quick appearance on DVD and Blu-ray retail shelves is usually a sign of a less than engrossing film.

But not always.

Although I am not a Kevin Costner fan, I was not bored by this involving, weird, atmospheric little horror story set in rural, contemporary South Carolina. Costner's performance is low key (some critics have called it "wooden") as single father, writer, John James who is trying to rebuild his family after a painful divorce and further burdened with sole custody and the all the requisite obligations of raising his teenage daughter Louisa (a terrific Ivana Baquero) and son (Gattlin Griffith).

The three have just moved into a remote house in a new location - a location apparently sacred to ancient dwellers on the land. There's a prominent burial mound on the property of peculiar interest to the James kids and to university anthropologists. As events unfold, Costner's character wrongly assumes the problems and challenges of his children are due to his limited parenting skills. He is wrong. The threats facing him and his children are ancient and evil and deadly.

I was surprised how much I enjoyed this little horror exercise. I liked the way it looked and the surprising story that was not telegraphed by the title of the box art. This is Luis Berdejo's directorial debut of an English language film. He also wrote the screenplay for QUARANTINE. He has a fine eye and ear for understated, moody, unsettling horror that creeps up on you and goes a little further than you expect. He is skilled at drawing the viewer into a slightly surreal universe in the midst of an ordinary, sunny day. Samantha Mathis co-stars as a concerned and friendly teacher. John Travis adapted the screenplay from a short story by John Connolly.
