I found this movie quite deceptive when it came to marketing and description and I cannot say I was really thrilled by it. It may have been better had it been given a different way, I doubt it b8t it is always possible, but you pick everything up as a package, description especially and Tartan label. That is kind of hard to set to the side and forget midway through - and thinking that still does not do anything for me on a personal level. I'm just trying to understand some of the ratings for the film, considering what I watched.
You have a plot line I do not want to destroy so I really cannot explain any more than the summary already given for the product. What I can say is that there was some real issues that made this seem to drag on. The way it was pieced together, bringing in pieces of dialog, then chopped up scenes meant to come together later, plus the family and their move, really became taxing after a while. I wanted to fast forward but figured I might always wonder if I missed something - I didn't.
There seemed to be three types of moments in the film: the part where people told you a story that sometimes fit together but sometime had you straining to understand why it was told this was, the revelation portions where you had a flashback or some piece that fit in, and scenes that went with heavily creepy music but maybe a shadow or maybe a flash of someone standing around, looking out of place. The creepy portions and revelations maybe comprised ten percent of the film and the ending was fast and really easy to drive home - even if you call it something other than horror that should not have happened. Ten minutes, a few words, one deed that is glossed over in a way, and its done. Every grating.
