Plot: A torn suburban family refuses to heed the warning of an innocent prank which causes an unknown supernatural force to wreak havoc
This movie centers around a really disfunctional family. The kids have issues. Their parents are religious and conservative and what a shocker they are massively hypocritical.
This movie is pessimistic and I hate that crap. It’s so damn easy to bitch and moan and offer zero hope or ideas. Just wax philosophical but claim nothing will change.
I AM GOING TO SPOIL THE ENDING NOW
Right after I tell you that there is boobs, but the overall movie is still kinda boring.
The movie is trying to say that “our mistakes become our ghosts” but like a lot of modern horror it does so in a negative way. See after the family all gathers at home, shit gets crazy. The father, James just leans into preaching even though his family is upset. They finally decide to leave but way too late. The doors are locked and the phone is out. You find out all the “bad” things each person did even if the thing isn’t bad. The parents and Morgan get together and decide to try to beat this thing but Caleb is possessed or something and burns down the house with his family inside. The End.
There is no redemption, no chance to make good, no hope, nothing to reach for here.
So we gave it a 26, don’t waster your time. If you want to watch a movie about creating your own demons but you haven’t given up on life and want a hopeful, positive ending/outlook, I recommend watching Iron Man 3, trust me, it is waaaay better.
