A mixed bag, well shot and well acted enough to mostly keep the viewer's attention, but meandering enough to frustrate at the same time.

None of the performers are able to make their schematic characters particularly interesting, with the exception of Wilson.

A fevered mishmash of spiritual and supernatural nonsense that feels like a trap of another kind, a metaphysical zone defined by arbitrary laws and by characters who are constantly screaming each other’s names.

While some of the nastier lurches in the third act will appease genre fans, the guff that surrounds them will probably confuse and ultimately alienate them, the film's moving parts never really moving in unison.

Runs too long and repeats itself too much to be as gripping as its source material. Turns out there's a limit to how scary weeds can be.
