this movie stands alone pretty well. it's a solid horror movie. the special effects are incredible (that garage scene! hooo boy!!!!). it feels poorly edited and poorly paced, which interferes a lot with the scare factor.
i hate to be the "in the book" guy but i have to be right now because this matters:
there are seven children in this story. each of them have distinct roles and personalities. so where is mike hanlon? mike is the history…
