SHOCKING, BUT AGREED! I forgot to read the reviews?! I just started watching and to my surprise, it kept my attention!! While mostly "a Children's Nightmare SCENARIO" (The Mommy, Daddy, & a kid afraid of the dark) those creepy thrills and chills were certainly adult and kept me happy. By NO means am I saying it's a little kiddies' film. I'm sure any little ones would end up in tears . I do criticize the "scary monster", however, who I wish were a bit more scary - a little "same-old, same-old", however, he/she/it kept me on constant guard and got me going on more than a few jump-scares... even the ones I knew were coming! I don't think any summary-reading is needed here. Let it entertain you, keep your thinking to a minimum and enjoyment to a maximum. Keep the carbon footprints down on the flashlight batteries!
