Two girls left to fend for themselves in the forest for five lonely years after the death of their mother find refuge in the home of their uncle. But it soon becomes clear that the girls have not arrived alone in this woodsy supernatural chiller.

Samir Mehta: “It ruled.”

Grading this on a curve for horror - it's probably like a "B" on an A-F scale but it gets an "It Ruled" because 1) Jessica Chastain is magnetic in this performance 2) the story, concept, and special effects are remarkable, and 3) the ending is truly haunting. It's not The Conjuring but it's excellent horror.
