Something bad happened according to the radio. An executive showed up at the office, killed his two partners and his estranged wife and disappeared after kidnapping his two small children. After an accident, he finds a lonely cabin way out in the woods. Soon the girls are left alone, stranded for five years, but somehow manage to survive until they are rescued by their uncle and come to live with him. But they seem to have brought some evil back with them in this horror film.

This is a pretty scary film. I was impressed because there are a lot of levels to this film. It does have very scary parts, and very suspenseful parts. There’s a lot going on here, and it’s a roller coaster ride, for sure. The stars of this film are the two little girls, Victoria (Megan Charpentier) as the older sister, wise and nurturing to her younger sister, Lilly (Isabelle Neliesse) sullen and silent. Lilly was only one when they were left alone in the woods. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau plays the two brothers, Lucas and Jeffrey. He’s really pretty good as a caring uncle with only the best intentions for the troubled nieces. Jessica Chastain is Annabel, a rocker chick who plays the bass in a band, but gives it all up to nurture the troubled children. But when Jeffrey has an accident and is in the hospital and Annabel is feeling really overwhelmed and can’t deal with the horrible things that are happening to the family.

Very scary, and doing very well in the box office. This is a good film for the big screen, and ought to be enjoyed in the group environment of the theater. One of the better horror films lately, and a nice change of pace from the other stuff that’s been out there. I recommend this one for the horror lovers out there.
