Synopsis: Annabel and Lucas are faced with the challenge of raising his young nieces that were left alone in the forest for 5 years…. but how alone were they?
Release Date: January 18, 2013
Thoughts: It’s been my experience that anything producer Guillermo del Toro gets his hands on has some value to it. Though not sitting in the director’s chair, you can absolutely see what drew him to this stylized type of horror film. We all know that a good editor can make even the friendliest of family film look like a slasher flick but the trailer presented here produces some nice tingles on the spine. Jessica Chastain is proving to be quite a layered actress – her turn as a rough around the edges surrogate mom to two creepy girls looks to be a nice departure from that flame haired performer she’s been seen as so far. I’m hoping that its January release date (typically a dumping ground for duds) doesn’t mean it’s a dog because it looks like a wonderfully scary tale.
