    Mothers will do anything for their children, but this film’s simplistic brand of horror never makes that devotion compelling or frightening. show more

    With its measured pacing, focus on family and repurposing of familiar horror conventions, the film represents a rather adult offering that can’t manage any memorable frights until well into the first hour of running time. show more

    The filmmakers are more concerned with shock-cuts, loud bangs, and creating Indian characters that are either servants or monsters, than with pushing the genre forward into satisfyingly visceral or psychological territory. show more
