While it won't change your world, this is a good scary movie. Well filmed and edited, and acted. Better than the typical spring loaded horror films. Well written and NOT FOR KIDS.
Nice that my jewish homies finally got an exorcist picture.... :)

It's a haunted house. You know, an experience you step into so that you can be shocked and frightened if you kind of go along with it. And the scary stuff is done well in this movie. Special effects are generally good and the film generally looks good. There is an enormous amount of energy spent trying to develop the divorce subplot with way too many awkward scenes of ex's interacting as children are picked up and dropped off, and of the ex being passive aggressive around the new love interest, and it's just not done well. Meanwhile the background story of the monster is treated reluctantly and abruptly. Lots of Exorcist II overtones. There wasn't really anything interesting about the characters. At the heart of every good movie is a good story...The story here is thin and unsatisfying; little more than a vehicle used to deliver a few well done scary scenes.

There were a few scary moments(without the blood) but they were few and far between. The young Jewish rabbi was an unexpected twist. But the biggest surprise was Kyra Sedgewick in the role of the mother. The movie was too mediocre for someone of her caliber.

No clue why some people thought it was funny...?? Also if you were not interested why did you go?? Why did you even write a review.
People are talking trash. The Movie was very well put together and made the hair on your neck stand up. Best horror movie I have seen recently sense The Women in Black.
Im a big movie guy and loved it a lot better than some of these possession movies.

I wouldn't buy it on DVD but it was okay. I took my kids 13 and 11 and it scared them but for an adult it wasn't a cover your eyes movie.
