Starring: Ethan Hawke, Juliet Rylance, James Ransone, Clare Foley, Vincent D'Onofrio, Fred Dalton Thompson, Michael Hall D'Addario
Directed by: Scott Derrickson
The plot: True crime novelist Ellison moves house with his wife Tracy and children Ashley and Trevor to a property where the previous owners came to an unfortunate end: four members of the ill-fated family were murdered and the only survivor, a girl, disappeared without trace from the crime scene. Ellison intends to use this grisly history as the basis for a new book and he relishes the chance to sift through Super 8 footage recovered from the attic, hoping to stumble upon clues to what really happened.

what the others say
"This so-so, occasionally effective horror film combines found-footage creepiness and haunted-house scares - but is stronger on mood than story."
"Derrickson bounces back from his insipid redo of The Day The Earth Stood Still with an effective chiller that's got a skeleton or two in its closet."
"An enjoyable, if boilerplate, boo-flick that maintains an enviable rate of scares per minute by throwing everything - demons, ghosts, snakes, loud noises - at the screen."
