Enjoyable enough if somewhat flawed supernatural effort
20 October 2018 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

Following her reappearance after an accident, a troubled teen finds that her foster stepsister has become a violent, secret sociopath that no one else believes stories, and when the time comes for her to finally get the proof puts her and the rest of the family in danger of the vicious being.

For the most part, this one was a lot of fun. One of the more enjoyable aspects of the film is the rather engrossing and chilling concept of the young children being specifically targeted. Starting with the opening showing the sister being targeted in the gloomy section of the forest and being dragged away, while the opening consisting of the race to find her after the disappearance of her sister which causes plenty of chaos around the household is wholly believable due to the early instances being around them. When she's returned, it starts off a rather fun thread of the girl being just off enough that something is obviously wrong with her but is completely overlooked because of the situation so that her antics of ripping off doll eyes, the night-time visits to the forest outside their house that nobody ever sees or the killing of others that nobody ever finds or believes can be blamed on the girl. As the longer she interacts with the imposter and becomes far more away of what's going on, there's a more distinct and pronounced sense of her evil tendencies as the various attacks and outspoken threats that are quite well realized and generate some thrilling elements with the violent outbursts against the friends as she races to unravel the truth about the mysterious beings around her. This finale gives the film a lot of nice bloodshed in the various kills and some creepy imagery to finish it off, really helping to hold this one up over it's few minor problems. The main issue here is the fact that there's just nothing really at stake here for so much of the film that it feels like a drama more than anything else with the way her family treats her instead of looking into what she's talking about. The fact that she tends to shift from going to her long-time girlfriend or the guy who has a crush on her for help makes it seem like it's flipping between different storylines and neither of them are all that concerned with playing up the horror of the situation as they focus more on the disbelieving sister storyline than anything else. As well, the fact that this one never really goes into detail about what's going on with the creature at the center of the story, as we get only one mention of what they are or how they keep everybody alive for as long as they do, much less the little girl who was able to wander through the woods leading them into the discovery of what's going on. These here are what somewhat hold it back overall.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language and themes of children-in-jeopardy.
