Synopsis:

A pagan god threatens the safety of all families who move into a small suburban home as each one looks through the family films housed in the attic where the demon escapes the still images to terrorize another new family.

Review:

You don't have horror designs anymore that don't have a dingy quality, don't feature a purportedly clever homage to the film's plot and an unnerving display of blood. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. This one succeeds more than it fails.

  • Trailer: C-

Review:

Candyman meets The Ring meets every other family-endangerment/possession film ever made. After Ethan Hawke's prior appearance in a take off of Ryan Reynolds' Buried, I'm beginning to wonder if he'll ever take on serious work again.

Oscar Prospects:

None.
