The tensions are increased throughout the film which increases the suspense. The movie digresses into a more modern ending which includes some blood, which may be the requirements of today's audience. Fortunately, the blood is not overdone. This movie lets one ponder issues such as who is the hero and who is the villain? The script is excellent. Overall, while horror is not my favorite genre, I was deeply impressed.
I know nothing of anyone associated with the film in any way, but think that they did a decent job within narrowly circumscribed limits. The lead male seemed already half shot before the couple (with newborn baby) moved into their new surroundings. The woman appeared bewildered from the moment they left for the "country". The other parts were negligible to the central action of the film. It was OK for the creators and Director to play it low key and inexplicable throughout, but not OK for them to provide no meaningful source for the happenings
My recommendation: if you like haunted house movies this is generally acceptable and not a grade B horror film. If you do not like unresolved puzzles, you are likely to be dissatisfied with the film. I saw it and left it with a sense of unease, of incompleteness, a reaction which the Director appears to have wanted.
I guess for me the overarching story was just way too depressing to simply enjoy the horror and again, the main characters are completely unsympathetic as they sit around stewing in paranoid, delusional fantasies all the while tearing at each other so that by the ending I really couldn't share in their triumph. :o)
The acting and creep factor was done well. I really got into the film, but it seemed to go nowhere. You know everything seems to center around "the woman", but the film leaves you hanging about her until the very end, and then you say, "That's it?" The clues they give you don't allow you to piece things together. The climax doesn't do the rest of the film justice. A little more than a meh rental.
Parental Guide: No f-bombs, sex, or nudity.

Really wish I hadn't paid to see this. No back story to set up why the family was going through this trouble and the acting on the dad's part was pretty bad.Published 1 month ago by linda in texas

I like the new twist this movie had (not sayin'). The acting was great, although there was a slow part in the middle, the movie had my attention throughout. Read morePublished 17 months ago by MJB
