The Bare Bones: In this remake of the classic horror film, a family moves into a new house, only to discover that its sinister history has left a violent presence behind.
Sam Raimi's influence is everywhere, and I feel like they gave him the exact wrong amount of control. Either he should have had more influence, and owned it as a campy nightmare, or given him less and stayed true to their predecessor. But as it stand, I found it disappointing in both aspects.
Awesome idea for a spinoff, though. The Adventures of Carrigan Burke.
