Kind of disturbing subject matter - murderous children doesn't exactly make for a light-hearted affair, but the tension is quite good and I can't fault the actors. Plus, I really liked the dark twist at the end. This is not a movie to go in to lightly, simply because it's pretty punishing, but kudos to Tom Shankland for not pulling any punches and going the distance.

Christmas family nightmare

I didnít like this movie. This is the first movie in a very long time that I have forced myself to finish watching. Several times I wanted to just turn it off and stop watching it. Family is very dear to me, so this movie hit a nerve. This is a very strong visual and psychological suspense horror movie.

Once that is said, there is no denying that the story and the script are well written. The actors deliver a brilliant performance and the directing is very good. The reason I didnít like this movie is because it hit a nerve with me, and touched something I donít want anything to do with. The story is good but itís about a topic I donít like. That is why I can say that this was a very good movie and at the same time say that I didnít like it.

Be warned this is not for everybody.
