Ugh... Unsatisfying, Pretentious, Predictable
Man, where do I even begin with this one... Story has been done to death, family moves somewhere, something bad happens to them, one of the family members fights back and gets revenge. But this is a disgrace to films that did it well. First off, this film follows the formula so exact that it so obviously predictable. Every plot point, every (attempted) scare, every moment of attempted intensity, I saw coming and expected. Nothing kept me interested. I nearly walked out of the theater (I even saw several people leave completely) but I figured I paid for this mess. Might as well finish it. The film was also highly pretentious, it presents itself as pure and compelling cinema but its laughable to see that, as the film is so terrible. There are still so many this that made me shake my head.
The acting was stilted and boring, something you would see in a Transformers movie, or Tyler Perry "film". I did not connect with any character whatsoever, which is bad because in these types of films you need to feel for the in danger family, as well as wanting the main character to get sweet revenge, and I felt none of that. The actors were talking furniture as far as I'm concerned. Not to mentiona all the ridiculous cliches that really turned me off and made me shake my head. I thought Truth or Dare was bad, but this was REALLY BAD. I mean, the only reason I didn't give this a one because the camera work wasn't bad. But even the cinematography was average at best.
Just don't see it....
