This is a very well acted Don't go in that house movie with a twist. It's a horror film and a meta horror film. The 5 youthful actors: Kristen Connolly, Anna Hutchison, Jesse Williams, Chris Hemsworth and Fran Kranz are uniformly good. You will see them again. You can add in Bradley Whitford, Richard Jenkins and (in a brief expository cameo) Sigourney Weaver. The main problem is that every time the film starts to get scary in a conventional sense, the meta story interrupts and breaks the rhythm. I was OK with this. My horror film fan companion was not. Good music on the soundtrack although not really the point of things. Probably a better one to see on a big screen.

 Flounder, you can't spend your whole life worrying about your mistakes! You fucked up... you trusted us!
