Robert Koehler Variety Too routine to stir up much energy or portent about the present-day impact of the mysterious disappearance in 1755 Princeton, Mass. Mar 6, 2006 Full Review Sheri Linden Hollywood Reporter A standard setup that unfolds with lukewarm results. Feb 14, 2006 Full Review Pablo Villaça Cinema em Cena Um terror convencional que, apesar dos esforos de Delpy, fracassa graas ao roteiro bobo e direo bvia de Stimpson. Rated: 2/5 Apr 24, 2006 Full Review Read all reviews

Audience Member Predictable. A young couple uproot to the country and buy an old house that is broken down. An elderly townswoman tries to spook them about past events and strange things happen. Very original. Not. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/18/23 Full Review don s A very tame and extremely lame attempt at a horror/thriller based on true events. I'm hard-pressed to find a reason for the R rating. The effects, which are very few, are poorly done (mostly just make-up), the story moves too slowly and is taken over by subplots that are uninteresting even if they become important late in the movie. The acting is poor too; surprisingly Julie Delpy even seemed to sleepwalk through it. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member It lacks everything it takes for a horror film. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member From the bad acting to the unrelateable characters and storyline filled with non sequiturs, this movie has no positive attributes and nothing good about it. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Lackluster story and performances. We're just not give anything to stir interest or any reason at all to care. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member This is about as scary as a reading of "Goodnight Moon" (which means it's significantly less scary than people who shop at Walmart), without any semblance of real suspense or thrills, and a pace that would make a nursing home look like a fraternity house during the weekend. There's a part or two where a half-assed attempt to "creep out the audience" occurs, but every time I started to grip my seat in anticipation, the film reminded me of what it really was, and lost all momentum abruptly. The worst part of this carrot-and-stick approach is that once the "big reveal" of the movie finally comes to light, it's impossible to justify the immense amount of mental pain the story and bad acting doled out beforehand.
