    Saw the premiere of this and haven't been able to stop thinking about it. Schwarzenegger is tender and subtle, I saw one review describe his performance as 'gentle', which I bet is not an adjective often used of the man. Abigail Breslin is a sad, scary, horrific lead. Joely Richardson plays a difficult role in a stepmother; a terrified third wheel doing her best with two small kids of her own. Movie is 90 minutes long and destined to be a cult classic. I think my only criticism is that the director's palette looked like an instagram 'old photos' filter; there was enough great acting in this film, and sad suspense leavened with humor, without having to wash it in beige.

    Overall loved the film, and the studio will regret not putting it in wide release.
