So my friends convinced me to watch this one. It had nothing to do with the fact Radcliffe is in, but mostly because it seemed creepy enough.
I will tell you the truth i was creeped out from the first scene. I have problem with that kind of movies since i can be scared quite easily. Anyway, the movie is indeed good.
The story is pretty much what the summary says, and the rest of it you don't know is really predictable (okay the very end wasn't). What really keeps you at the edge of your sit is how creepy the movie is. It has a lot of "jump" scenes and the atmosphere is dark and cold, and so well created that they managed to make scary even a small cat toy. I mean i would have played with that toy, but the directing was so good that made to want to stay away from it. And every other single toy in that movie for the matter.
Daniel Radclife is pretty decent in his role. He does seem a little weird as a father and someone old-ish who has a job as a lawyer and stuff but the rest fitted nicely with him.
There is only 2-3 people at the rest cast who act, since the whole movie is around Dan in that stupid gothic mansion he was staying (i HATE that mansion! i just wanted him to go away! freaky mansion!).
In general is a good movie but to truly enjoy it you need to concentrate on it (that means don't eat or talk while watching like us), have the sound high and close the lights. I didn't let them to do any of that. I wanted to sleep later.
