    Generic is the perfect adjective for this horrible so called horror movie. You'll be bored until the last 5 minutes of the movie and then boredom becomes stupidity.

  1. This remake turns a fondly remembered horror/thriller into a mild and tedious suspense film.
  2. 0
    Walsh is just a dumb bully who can’t see more than one or two steps ahead. He’s doomed to generic slasher villainy, and the film thoughtlessly obliges.
  3. The trouble with the movie, apart from its rather monotonous dourness of tone, is that everyone in the family, especially the reformed-delinquent high school son (Penn Badgley), comes off as tougher, smarter, and quicker on the draw than the stepfather who's supposed to be outfoxing them.
