Director Alistair Orr did a decent job with this horror flick. He looks young in his IMDB photo so I am sure he will improve. As it was, I felt like I was watching a predictable made-for-tv type horror film. The actors are also new to the craft. The lead does a good job but the whole thing is just uninteresting. It doesn’t make me feel for these people. It is kind of interesting that they are robbers. Of course, we shouldn’t care for robbers. BUT, the problem is when they get into the satanic demonic stuff. A priest has no power over a demon? Hmmm. OK.

There’s no big takeaway here. You walk away from this the same way you go in. It’s a robbery gone bad and the reason it fumbled was because the house was filled with demons. Not much here innovative or new. For that reason, I give it a

5/10

Hopelessly devoted to movies from way back when I first saw "Pete's Dragon." In 1977, it sealed the deal when I saw "Star Wars." I write about the movies I see, whether I like them or not. Sometimes I like them more than words can express! Thanks for checking out my movie reviews!
