Sinks or swims with the actors. Gallner makes a very convincing boy-about-to-die; Madsen is his properly stricken mom; and Donovan, an under-used leading man, plays the stressed, guilt-ridden dad well. Read full review

A tepid PG-13 iteration of the already lame 1979 genre classic "The Amityville Horror." Read full review
