    It tries to make social commentary about power and race relations in Arkansas after the Civil War, but the intended message gets buried in a cesspool of sluggish storytelling and terrible acting. This horror movie also fails to be suspenseful or scary.

    A great premise and very atmospheric-especially in the closing moments. The plot often loses its way, but it does manage to remain interesting on the whole.
