Two siblings become increasingly frightened by their grandparents’ disturbing behavior while visiting them on vacation. (IMDb)
A charming adolescent amateur-doc delivery gives this flick a relatable spooky-fun sort of feel in its kid-investigation first two acts featuring an enjoyable smattering of random creepy events (see especially Grandma’s nighttime escapades). Its believability comes into question post-(great)twist as the action picks up, but it makes it no less chilling. The family drama vacillates between feeling like an enriching and an irrelevant sub-plot but is consistently well-acted (Hahn especially).
I share the same thoughts on this film as you do. It’s decent, but nowhere near as great as Shyamalan’s first three major films. It is a step in the right direction, though!
