I never really understood the idea of centering a horror movie around a child or prepubescent protagonist. I have two main arguments against it. My first is that many parents are protective of what their kids see, thus preventing many minors from seeing the movie that has a main character aimed at them. The other reason being that anyone who can see this movie easily has almost no way of relating to the younger characters. Story/Writing: .5/2
Loses it’s place in confusing the audience when it isn’t busy stringing along the plot with terrible and thin dialogue. It’s almost like it wants to be unwatchable.
Not a whole lot better than the writing…
It looks like they just took somebody’s new-ish suburban house and dismantled it. Probably the most interesting part was the scene in the backyard pit, which was too short anyway.
Pretty neat effects are definitely the main attraction here. The claymation style used is most reminiscent of Dynamation technique, which I think is pretty cool.
It’s okay, but unless you’re looking for a case study in 1980’s special effects, you can probably pass.
