Haunted house thriller with Patrick Wilson and Rose Byrne Discuss this article

This haunted-house thriller’s title alone suggests a trip to the library. Yet the film’s low-budget atmospherics and clichéd floor-creakings are a poor substitute for director James Wan’s nauseating impact of yore. It follows the Poltergeist playbook to an almost plagiaristic degree, complete with a believably warm couple (Wilson and Byrne) wrecked by paranormal goings-on.
