Not a terrible movie, but nothing to write home about. Based on a Stephen King story, so you know it can’t be THAT bad, but he has a lot of mediocre storylines, so there’s real potential for it to not be great. Special effects seemed pretty bad for 2014, distractingly so. Felt a little made-for-TV. All in all, not a bad watch, particularly if you’re stuck at home and flying through movies you’ve never seen. Kids go to stay with grandma, she’s been possessed, little boy has to fight the devil in order to save the souls of everyone ever. Also, P.S., Cthulhu. What? Anyway. I bet the short story’s much scarier. Pass.
