A struggling writer of true fiction moves him and his family into a house where a grisly murder took place years before. He soon discovers a box filled with “home movies” which turns out to be videos of family being murdered. He then starts to see some of the crazy things in his new house.
The acting is pretty good, which is difficult to say with most scary movies. Ethan Hawke is a great actor and that carries on here. The movie is actually scary, there were points when the whole theater screamed. Overall it is a well done scary movie.
I feel like they missed out with the ending, it had potential to be better, but it fell just a bit short. There was a few more minor things that I found odd, but I can’t really say them without giving away the story.

Fun Fact? There is no theater where I live so I have to head into the next city over, Sacramento. In the movie, when they say one of the families was killed in Sacramento, CA, everyone pretty much crapped their pants. That was cool.
