a little too much slow burn and a little too much tonal shifts for me. didn't nail it as with house of the devil but when the terror comes, it is pulled off extremely well. creepy as hell.
Deathly dull. There's not much of a story, and the characters aren't interesting enough to watch it for, and with how little happens with the rest of the movie, the ramped up ending makes no sense.
Three skulls for good performances and writing. But, the payoff was too long in waiting and there were very few hints of what was to come until nearly the end.
Slow. No payoff.
What a stinker. Two poots.
