This psychological thriller and horror movie is about Emily Jenkins, a social worker who meets a ten year old girl with some really terrible parents. Emily decides to take the child into custody until she can figure out what to do, but she quickly realizes that the child may actually be a demon herself and not as innocent as she once thought. The storyline of this movie is definitely overplayed which took away from some of the enjoyment as a viewer, since I was able to predict many of the plot points. I would rate this movie 2.5/5 stars and recommend it to those who aren’t tired of the same old story. @The_Reviewer of the Hamilton Public Library Teen Review Board

This movie is a very good thriller. The main actress , and the little girl are amazing actresses. I liked this horror film because it's not predictable. It's supernatural , and creepy. I believe that something scary popping out in front of you is not really a good horror movie. What makes a horror movie is a scary plot, and creepy thoughts. It's very instersting and supenseful. I was throughly entertained. I haven't seen a good movie like this in a long time. I didn't give it five stars cuz I believe they could've put more but other than that great movie. Four stars.

Ok, so not the best thriller ever. But, I ended up watching it AGAIN... and I must say this time it almost seemed like the entire movie is based of of; facing fear, or the only thing to fear is fear itself..

Creepy supernatural tale with super performances by the two lead actresses.

I was "creeped out" at this movie in general.
I blame the writer for trying to out do what has been done before. The shock value is gone after the first re-do and to continue in this vain is desensitizing. I have seen better then this from both main actors. Just a quick payday till a better studio offer comes their way. Half way through I gave up.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: Not really scary but creepy and distrubing scenes. These scenes are more suprising than to make you jump.

Frightening or Intense Scenes: If you havent seen a lot of horror movies this will creep you out. If you can find it try "The Bad Seed" It was the first of the evil little child thrillers.
