Bad Seed-style horror movie is gory and ludicrous.

Fresh: The film rests on Furhman's shoulders, and she's up to the task.

An easy watching Horror, which is not a strictly an original setup, but better acted than most of this genre. Capturing the art of manipulation, Isabelle Fuhrman pulls off the "evil" child in a kind of "Omen" and "Godsend" type fashion.

One of the best horror/suspense films I have seen in a long time. I would have rated it five stars if it wasn't for the abrupt ending, (which is strange considering it was 2 hours long, still felt it could have been a little longer at the end). Isabelle Fuhman is excellent as creepy little Esther, as are the rest of the cast - I really found the whole family believable and sympathetic. Also, it had a twist I never saw coming........SPOILER............................................ They did the makeup on the little girl so well, I really was questioning if it was the same person once the teeth came out etc. Well worth a look. This had me on the edge of my seat pretty much the whole time.
