Insidious, The Innkeepers, Silent House or Lovely Molly -- to name the four most recent scare movies I've seen. The plot involves a recently dead mom, two sisters who may or may not appear at the funeral service, the past come back to haunt the present and the de rigueur endangered child. This is all you need to know to have a good time as you watch and quake and figure things out.
Caity Lotz (shown in the photos above and below), who, once a couple of other females (Kathleen Rose Perkins, Agnes Bruckner) go missing, becomes the movie's focus and (gee, what ever happened to...?) Casper van Dien (yes, Starship Troopers!), who is quite good as that policeman who involves himself in this odd and initially unbelievable case.
IFC Films, opens this Friday, July 6, in New York at the IFC Center; in the Los Angeles area on Friday, July 13, at Laemmle's Noho 7, and has already been available on VOD and digitally for the past month.
