Robert De Niro and Dakota Fanning playing his little daughter bring to us a credible drama in the old village house. De Niro is one of todays most experienced film actors and he knows how to do it, to make you believe him almost everything. And the little child Dakota has more film experience than you can believe. She constantly appears on screen from her six years.
But back to the movie. Until the seventienth minute you will probably have no clue, who is there missing in the movie and who/why is the bad, but then the characters will start to uncover themselves, things will be more predictable and in the last minutes all things will get absolutely clear. The atmosphere of the movie itself is really scary and the great performance of both main actors helps to create very good horror experience. It is sometimes a little bit bloody, but not more than the daily news.
I do not want to tell you the whole story, but it is in my opinion a good movie. Not that kind you know as a must see, but good enough. If you like psycho dramas and intelligent horrors you surely enjoy this movie.
