Director: Gil Kenan
Main Stars: Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt, Kennedi Clementts, Saxon Sharbino, Kyle Catlett
Storyline: A young family moves into a new place that is haunted and their young daughter gets abducted.
Review (Spoils): The Bowens move into a new house which none of the three kids are too excited about. We have money issues and the youngest a girl named Madison (Kennedi Clementts ) starts to play with some imaginary friends in her new bedroom. The middle child a young boy named Griffon (Kyle Catlett) starts to complain about the weirdness of the house and before you know it the madness starts.
Basically if you have seen the original then you have seen this in a better shape and form. They took all three past films and tried to use the best parts and jammed it into this mess. Why a mess? Well there is nothing original to this at all that stands out. We have the tree, the clown doll, the rope, the goo, the TV and some over the top looking CGI. The only thing that kept me interested as a character was the young parents (Sam Rockwell, Rosemarie DeWitt ) and the oldest daughter Kendra (Saxon Sharbino). The other children fell flat and I personally did not care if they got taken away….which is bead as they are the focus characters.
Rating: Same old song and dance with this one and once again a bad remake that failed and should have never been made. I was actually bored with this film and towards the middle to the end it seemed rushed and cheesy. Why will Hollywood not learn from making remakes of so many classic horror films.
