I have to admit that this movie was a frightening experience for me. I don`t know why it was so scary, but during the entire movie I was on the edge of my seat (I mean bed). Many say that it’s a mixture of more popular movies like Poltergeist, Paranormal Activity, The Exorcist and the Hitchcock opus, borrowing from them the best elements and creating something new and this is partially true. But, James Wan (Saw) created this Frankenstein very carefully and deliberately, with his original vibe that he’s famous for. Towards the end of the flick he introduced two goofy characters to ease up the atmosphere, just to have it smashed the next moment, I can only imagine what this guy will be directing in ten years… And bear in mind that this movie is PG-13, which is quite strange considering everything.
After a happy and average family moves to a new house the wife will start to notice strange things in it. While the husband is working around the clock to make money(I thought that he was cheating on her but I guess Patrick Wilson is a pussy), the wife is left with two kids and a baby. Although, so far the script sounds like something that could develop into a comedy, when Dalton climbs to the attic that option will be lost. I will not give you the rest of the plot, just trust me on this one. Almost everything about this movie turns out to be some sort of twist in the story, so most of the stuff is misleading. Just relax, play the movie and prepared to be scared…
