Title says it all: Kevin Bacon and his family book a vacation at an isolated modern home in the Welsh countryside. Then weird stuff begin to happen. By “weird” I mean the same generic things we’ve come to expect from movies of the same genre. What starts out as an intriguing mystery soon turns into a preposterous thriller that makes no sense whatsoever. Bacon and Amanda Seyfried are both wasted here, but the movie would have been even worse without them. So that extra star goes to them. Everything else, from the lazy writing to a stupid climax, is a dud. Needless to say, this movie should have never left that studio.
