A young college professor and his pregnant wife unwittingly release a malevolent entity with murderous intentions.
User Reviews: Okay, so this isn’t perfect by any means but I managed to watch it to the end and I even managed to bring myself to give it a 6/10 rating.
A pregnant couple move into a faculty house when the husband gets a job in the area as a math teacher. When they get there they find a gift has already arrived for them; a fertility box which can’t be opened – until the wife opens it… Anyway, at the husband’s new school he meets the head of the department, an enigmatic, blind guy who has other, more paranormal interests outside of academia.
The drawbacks of this film to me were that it was predictable (which is okay if it’s filmed and directed well – and this wasn’t too bad) and the other thing is the husband…he’s a bit 2 dimensional and doesn’t display enough emotion or good, realistic reactions to the events that transpire (not the actor’s fault. It’s the fault of the director).
The pros of this film are that, although it’s a painted by numbers horror, the characters and acting are good and the there were enough interesting and quite well-done moments of horror throughout to sustain my interest which has become extremely fussy these days (being 50 years old).
Overall: Not bad! A bit flat in places but a half decent offering. It’s more of a 5 but I gave it 6 because I got to end without feeling too much frustration.
