Imagery derivative of "Jacob's Ladder" and "The Ring". Someone oughta investigate Elisabeth Moss' attic after signing onto this project, amirite?

This was a bust for me. Not scary, not engaging, and not stimulating. The dialogue was worse than most tv shows, and the acting stiff and predictable. Pass it by, there are many other films to truly enjoy here.

A unexpected twist at the end.

Avoid at all costs.

I wanted to like this so badly. I like the concept and the setup, and while some of the directorial choices and cinematography were ridiculous and cheesy, some of it was stunning. Elizabeth Moss is fantastic, the actors playing the parents were very good, I thought. Ultimately, I could not make it through. The disability issue with the brother wasn't done with the sort of nuance and sensitivity that make it work, even though, again, I wanted it to work. It wasn't the disability plot, per se, that was a problem. It had a lot of potential, even, especially in adding depth to the parental characters. And yet. . . it just wasn't as good as it should have been. Deeply flawed execution of interesting story.

There's a reasonably good plot here, but it's poorly handled. Were it not for the stellar performance of Elisabeth Moss I would have rated it as one star.
