An average movie

I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this flick but since I have a weak spot for Jessica Chastain, I thought I might as well check it out. Well, to be honest, I ended up with some mixed feelings about the damned thing. Indeed, even thoug there were some couple of interesting things, in my opinion, it was still a rather generic ghost story. In fact, this movie could be a good example why horror flicks tend to have a rather lame reputation. The reason would be that this film, and so many other movies in this genre, was just so half-baked. For example, the intro was just rather weak. I mean, was that the only way they could find to have these 2 little girls end up in this cabin? Then, I was just amazed that nobody wondered how such young girls could survive for 5 years on their own in the wilderness.  Concerning Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, he is a decent actor but what’s the point of playing a set of twins if none of them was developed whatsoever? At least,  I was once again impressed by Jessica Chastain who played a completely different character than what I have seen her doing so far and she was as usual so convincing. I also have to admit that the ending was actually not bad at all as it took a really surprising turn while the rest of the movie was just seriously predictable. Anyway, to conclude, I think that my rating was actually generous here but I guess the damned thing might be worth a look but only if you really like the genre.
