I love this movie. It's one of my favorite modern horror movies. Ryan Reynolds gives a great performance as George Lutz; a man who is slowly being taken over by the demons in the house. He alternates between threatening and annoyed. One minute he's making his step-son hold up wood while he chops ("We're friends, aren't we? We're having fun."). The next minute he's sneering at a touching moment between mother and father. ("What's wrong with this family?") The next minute he's trying to kill his entire family. I can understand. I've had bad days, too.
It's a good haunted house movie. If you haven't seen it yet, definitely check it out.
