I thought it was a decent horror movie.

The movie started out kind of interesting. As soon as the final 30 mins. began I knew it would be just another dumb movie. It wants to make a statement about witchcraft. But it just falls apart. No big deal, just another letdown.

This was an incredibly well-done film. If you've seen the recent cult favorite Trollhunter, this is done by the same filmmakers. This doesn't resort to cheap jump scares or superfluous gore. There are a lot of levels to this movie, and admittedly, it might bore some folks. But what I really enjoyed is that not everything is laid out for the viewer, there's certain conclusions we're left to draw on our own. That I definitely find refreshing. The soundtrack is incredibly unsettling and atmospheric and it was a welcome change to see a father/son duo in a horror movie as opposed to an ill-fated boring romantic pair. WARNING: There is an animal death that is pretty gruesome. The cat is "put out of its misery" but it is an upsetting situation.

Not really much of a story, but better than an average scary film. Good job of building up the scary atmosphere and decent acting. More importantly, this movie is gripping. I highly recommend it.

I was quite invested for about half of the movie. I thought it was going in the direction of a gritty, crime-horror movie... until it got weird.

Worth renting for some basic horror scares. More interesting than scary, more unsettling than dumb. The ah-ha (sometimes uncharacteristic) moment that carries the plot isn't as far fetched when you're that far down the rabbit-hole already.

Not really that "scary" but a slightly-better-than-average story, or at least it wasn't a cabin in the woods with a group of screaming teens who get killed off one by one.

A PBS show on nuclear war was on while I watched this... I now am sure it would have been a far more scarier choice of viewing.

Very graphic, but a good edge-of-your-seat movie. This isn't truly scary, but it is disturbing, and not just in the graphic images way.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: A cat is shown having its neck broken after being found mutilated but still alive.
