The director who launched the "Saw" franchise, James Wan, shows he has what it takes to freshen up other horror concepts with this paranormal investigation melodrama ... which was a surprisingly strong force at the box office.
Vera Farmiga ("Bates Motel") and Patrick Wilson - also one of Wan's "Insidious"stars - play supposed experts of the supernatural who end up in over their heads when they probe a family's apparently haunted farmhouse. DVD extra: "making-of" documentary. *** (R: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
