Scary, engaging, and intelligent....
on July 18, 2016
Chilling horror/mystery with great character development and interaction, and much homage to other films. Kevin Bacon's character is a skeptic about hypnosis and psychic phenomena, until he asks his sister-in-law to hypnotize him, thus opening his mind to the spiritual world, which, he discovers, his five-year-old son knows a lot about. There are visual references to "Psycho," "Night of the Living Dead" (which is also on TV at one point in the movie), a bit of Edgar Allan Poe, and even "Close Encounters of the Third Kind," though this is not a sci-fi film. This is a must-see if you like your horror movies scary, engaging, and intelligent.
