    Giving this one star purely because I saw this a while ago so I've calmed down. This sucked hard though.

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Fresh from the critical success of the highly overrated MARTYRS,filmmaker Pascal Laugier moved to making this bland thriller about local doctor Jessica Biel being caught up in the antics of a serial child abductor that is connected to a child smuggling black market ring,with Biel taking the fall for their antics as Jodelle Ferland allows the title character to kidnap her from her dysfunctional backwoods family. It starts out with an interesting concept that unravels itself in a very ridiculous manner and is worth avoiding at all costs. With Stephen McHattie(PONTYPOOL).

    Apart from the social politics getting lost in translation from France to America, Laugier fails to establish an enduring environment. The production design is ever changing in its perspective, at times rendering "Crewdson-esque", backwoods imagery where the staging reaches surrealist heights but is immediately negated by banal realism. None of these aesthetics are motivated by any changing perspective. If Biel's character is our protagonist, why don't we see the film through her eyes even for a glimpse? Her dubious intentions would seem far less daft if Laugier bothered to allow her self-righteousness to permeate.

    this brand of deceptive thriller is one I find myself cautiously fascinated by, mostly on account of their outright refusal to provide one stationary protagonist as a point of reference for the surrounding events of the film, leaving the audience empty-handed and forcing them to stay engaged. it’s a rather genius technique that this seems to have down for its first two thirds, which is why it’s a little baffling that this would choose to rely on silly monster mythologies for its marketing and, perhaps most deceptive of all, finish by exhorting a flawed and convoluted eye-roller of a social commentary.
