A seemingly wholesome and benevolent family, the Parkers have always kept to themselves, and for good reason. Behind closed doors, patriarch Frank rules the roost with a rigorous fervor, determined to keep his ancestral customs intact at any cost…

Predictable. It feels like you're being dragged into your partner's family dinner and you try your best to pay attention to what they're saying and try to stuff yourself as much as possible, but you're actually just bored and wanna leave.
I think that a lot of people missed this, which is a shame because, unlike some other recent horror movies that have been praised, this one is actually quite good. It's dark and sad and sick and moody. A visual style way above average for what's usual in this kind of films, nice soundtrack, good cast... the ending was exciting and gory! Really nice surprise.
More dramatic than the original, but certainly not superior as it's more conceited than the first film's tongue-in-cheek metaphor. This remake may have many half-mastered good ideas and a suspenseful ending, but seems sluggish and suffers from concealing the nature of the family that comes off more like a half-baked twist than a serious analysis on poverty breeding traditional values and religious zealotry.
People expected this to be terrifying, but it's not; and that's okay. This film is creepy from start to finish, and they dance around the word that defines what they do to survive. For actors I've never heard of before, they were really great here. The ending is also great and not cheesy. I was really surprised by this film and recommend it to anyone who loves a well made creepy movie.
Il problema principale del film è che non ha alcun senso del ritmo: ogni tanto accelera e diventa allora sì, gradevole, però per il resto del tempo gioca con il sotteso di una questione che non è un segreto per nessuno (visto che è spiattellata in ogni sinossi). Il finale però è bello, non tanto per la venatura finto\slasher quanto per l'assalto finale.
Ok. This somehow makes you frightened at moments, but then it stops making sense, the plot has holes everywhere and it gets more stupid the more you go through it.
Yeah, good music, good cinematography, but it's just a retarded plot, and that ending is one of the most unnecesary and random things i ever seen. Way too edgy.
A horror movie well put together with a good cast and nice soundtrack. I did not watch the original, but the cinematography on this remake is undeniably beautiful. It starts out with the matriarch of the family passing away unexpectedly, leaving her husband grieving, as he forces their eldest daughter to assume the responsibility for keeping the family tradition, a very gruesome one...
