This is such a bad year for this genre that I needed to go on a last minute watching binge in order to find five movie that I would feel at least a little good about nominating. I’d thought that Paranormal Activity 3 would swoop in and take this spot once I rented it, but that didn’t quite satisfy me either. Then on a lark I checked this movie out and was really pleasantly surprised. This is still a default winner that’s gotten through on account of a weak year. It has a weak first act, bland acting, and it’s overly reliant on jump scares. Still, it did clearly outclass the competition.
