2.0 out of 5 stars A Horror Junkie's review: a slow pace, lead boots, and over/under acting killed this one, February 15, 2014
This review is from: The Haunting Of Helena (Amazon Instant Video)
Well, the horror visual effects were very well done, so I'm sorry the acting and the pacing dragged it down. If the movie was a montage of that and cut out the "acting", I'd like it much better. Ugh! The mother needs acting lessons. She overacted and came off like a histrionic sometimes and yet wooden at others. How does that happen? The kid was one note all the way. The pacing was poor- the story moved like it had lead boots on. Few horror movies have conveyed such a lack of urgency. Ultimately, it bored me. The Tooth Fairy here has no teeth.
