A mumbling and unfocused haunted house flick that starts strong and disappoints hard. The unconvincing ending and whimpering climax makes me think that no one involved actually cares about the core theme.
A competently made but generic, run off the mill, boring 'family moves into a haunted house' fare that never really delivers any thrill. It's filled with predictable scares, forgettable characters, and unbelievably poor dialogue and decision making. I appreciate the mystery of the film but less so the execution. Love whenever John Gallagher Jr. is onscreen, though.
