IMPORTANT: This film starts with a twelve year old white boy rapping. I do not know why. If you can get past that, It's a great film.
Overall Rating: 3.2/5
Director: M. Night Shyamalan
Rewatchability: A Few Times
Watch If: You're down for a creepy, suspenseful movie that has a lot of wtf.
Not If: You hate child actors.
The Bare Bones: Two children visit their estranged grandparents and become increasingly disturbed by the couples odd behavior.
That being said, The whole found footage angle of this is oddly forgettable. That's not necessarily a bad thing, but its one of the things that prevents me from giving this a higher score. There's something that breaks the mode when I'm supposed to believe that two kids can shoot a more steady frame than most television film crews.
He had to bookend the thing with a young white child rapping (poorly).
That's right, folks. Bookend. It starts, and ends, with that. Any sence of horror, stress, terror, or other interest is ruined. Like, shattered. When you cringe during a horror, it should be from gore, or empathy, or stress build up.
Not this. Never this.
