The acting abilities of Elisabeth Shue (Leaving Las Vegas), Jennifer Lawrence (Hunger Games, Winter’s Bone) and Max Thieriot (Jumper) made an otherwise B movie something worth sitting through. This thriller is about a broken family moving into a wooded neighborhood across from a house in which a family was murdered. For a film that’s supposed to make me jump out of my skin, I couldn’t help but feel that too much time was wasted on character development. Somehow the drawn out dialogue, flashbacks and explanations stole from the suspense and shock.
