I was yet again tempted by the lovely Mel of Vampire Placebo to try and watch a horror movie for Review Club.
I had never even heard of this movie beforehand and had no clue what to expect in any way, shape or form.
Being that I’m generally not averse to horror movies, I waited to watch this one in the light of day so that I wouldn’t get any kind of nightmares from it.
Truth is, those precautions were all for naught because this movie was terrible and wasn’t scary in the least.
The musical score tried to make it seem scarier than it was, but I can’t really say that they were so successful in doing so (and I am one who scares easily from creepy horror movies).
The plot revolves around a known plot device in these kind of movies where a house is haunted by the victims of crimes committed years earlier and didn’t really feel unique in the way any of it was presented.
I had hoped that with the likes of Stephen Rea, Scott Speedman and of course Julia Stiles, this would be better than it was, but in the end, not even any of them could help this borefest.
