Time Out

A bizarre, conflicted mess, horrifying when it’s trying to be funny, oddly appealing when it turns the screws.

Shyamalan has a fine eye and a nice, natural way with actors, and he has a talent for gently rap-rap-rapping on your nerves.

This tardy rehash of fairytale tropes finds sometime genre innovator M Night Shyamalan clinging in abject desperation to the found-footage movement’s careworn coattails.

No spoilers, except to say that cheap thrills can still be a blast.

Well cast and strong on setting. But the dull thudding that resounds isn’t part of its effective aural design...

An utterly enjoyable and oddly affecting experience that's not only Shyamalan's best film in years but also a cracking thriller in its own right.

Shyamalan finds freshness in familiar horror tropes. After some big budget misfires, it's great to see him go back to his smaller, scarier roots.
