I was jolted sufficiently. The storyline had the potential to be good, but was lost on the horrible acting of the main characters. I was especially disappointed with Donnie Wahlberg's acting. I would like to find a horror film that can encompass both a good storyline, quality acting and great jolts. Is that really so hard to accomplish? If you want to be scared, you'd do good to see this film.

Village Voice
Dolls are innately unnerving, but the movie's semi-menacing Charlie McCarthys never live up to their potential. As creaky nonsense goes, though, this is chock-full of corny goodness down to its hilarious sense-shredding "twist," which the movie reveals like a magician proudly unveiling a dead rabbit.

A conflation of the horror genre's laziest tropes, plot angles and shorthands, this inept creation isn't so much a film as it is a smorgasbord. Full Review

The Hollywood Reporter
Boasts nothing new under the sun, but it does provide a few decent scares. Full Review
Marc Savlov
Austin Chronicle
Wan does manage to infuse his film with some of the subtle unsubtleties of classic Euro-horror outings, chief among them the palpable, dreamlike sense of dislocation and the abiding severance from reality that tends to make nongenre fans wonder if someone spiked their popcorn with LSD. Full Review
Matt Zoller Seitz
The New York Times
The director, James Wan, and the writer, Leigh Whannell (the team behind the controversially brutal "Saw" series), deliver the mandatory shocks and gross-outs, backed by dissonant bursts of music and made almost elegant by the cinematographer John R. Leonetti's desaturated images. Full Review
