The generic title of this film is appropriate, because there’s nothing but a bunch of trite tropes with little reason and virtually no effect. Almost the entire narrative takes place on a farm, where the patriarch is slowing dying. His wife and 2 adult children are around for support, but the evil that’s supposed to scare us lurks in every shadow (and there are plenty). One by one, the characters begin to experience ghostly apparitions and jump scares. Not one moment of this film is original and the tedious pace doesn’t make it any easier to stomach. Lots of malevolent portent and ominious music don’t make the tired violence any more effective. Anyone who’s not especially picky and likes to see moving shadows, creepy specters and self-inflicted violence might appreciate the predictable scares.
