The Messengers and The Amityville Horror mixed together with Shutter Island and The Others. A story which doesn't seem to know where it wants to be, it doesn't feel like a horror nor does it feel like a psychological drama.
The opening has a horror feel, the family in their new home but as they're setting in strange things start happening. A non original horror movie story, but its proven to work. Daniel Craig begins investigating to what happened in his family's home before they arrived, he makes a shocking discovery and then you're hit with a HUGE twist! You didn't see it coming, and in some ways it seems quite random and doesn't have a lot of logic behind it.
This is when the story then changes to its more psychological side and becomes a drama. It runs out as a drama apart from a little bit of tension in the closing minutes.
The movie is so mixed up it seems like a waste of Craig's, Weisz's and Watts' time. It seems like they all tried hard for a movie which just didn't pull through.
Overall: There's a good movie in there, the beginning was typical horror and feels like nothing new. The later stages show a lot of good potential but it never came to anything.
