HORROR. The movie proves that even there’s no gore, too much blood, nudity, severe infestation, you can create a concrete scary film. In addition to that, it’s very suspenseful like it will keep you on the edge. The scares become more and more intense as it went along. It made the audiences feared on the unknown as what will happen next. Jump scares are smart, no fake or sudden twaddle of boo. Cinematography, Music, REAL PROSTHETICS and PROPS added to its wise approach.

ACTING. One of the gems of this movie is the acting, the characters performed clever especially Patrick Wilson and Lili Taylor who’re expert in Horror-Suspense films as well as Vera Farmiga, an Oscar acclaimed actress and kudos to Ron Livingston who also did a good job. The kids here were not annoying; they showed how a child feels when they were creep out.

DIRECTING. James Wan, Hands-down, he’s so smart in regards to this genre. I can say that he’s now a BRAND.

Overall, this film is a great mash-up of the entire horrifying components you’ve seen in movies and probably in the future, in contrary, all of those aspects were handled brilliantly. There’s a great build up of tension and character development in each of the sceneries as it has a good quality of storytelling which starts into slow paced structure up to the sensible horrifying climax. A must-see movie!

RATING: 9.5/10
