This is a horrible film. It gets a bit slow at times. When I first saw this film I was expecting a horror movie, very quickly I realized that it wasn’t that. I think that this movie should have been labled a drama/thriller. It does have it’s more frightening scenes that most horror movies don’t have. Two scenes that I remember the most are the boy that says “Let me show you where my Dad keeps his gun.” And the lady in the kitchen that chases Cole back to his tent. For some reason those scenes had me sitting on the edge of my seat. But overall this film lacks everything it needs to be a good horror movie. If you want to see a good ghost story check out Poltergeist. This film has a shocking ending but sadly, the director uses the same kind of ending in all his films and the ending has been done before. I recommend this film to most people because it is loved by many. But it wasn’t my kind of movie. I give it an 4 out of 10.
