Movie of the Month

This Month at the Movies

Hi, I’m Heather, Barbara’s daughter, and I’ll be giving you a little insight into a family friendly movie or a date night movie each month. I have two daughters, ages 5 and 2, so we get to watch a ton of kid movies but we do watch movies just for us as well.

1 hour and 43 minutes

6.8 Stars out of 10

A gripping story of a family in search of help for their son, Dalton, who fell into a coma after a mysterious incident in the attic. Little do they know that there is much more to this endless sleep than meets the eye as they explore the paranormal and rediscover the past; the key to getting their son back once and for all. At the beginning of the film, a shadowy old woman is seen inside a house while the inhabitants sleep. Renai and Josh Lambert have recently moved into a new home with their three children. One morning, Renai looks through a family photo album with her son, Dalton, who asks why there are no pictures of Josh when he was a child.

Review by Heather McCoy

I am sure I have said this before, I do not like scary movies. I watched this close to Halloween with my boyfriend, Eddie. I jumped out of my seat only once or twice. Even though I don’t like scary movies, I actually liked this one maybe it’s because I think all the paranormal stuff is really interesting. I plan on watching the next two movies of this series. I think you all should too but only if you liked the first one. Eddie and I did let our little girls (Phoebe 2 yrs. old and Carla 5 yrs. old) be in the room when we watched it. It was funny to see their reactions. Carla wasn’t scared at all and Phoebe only got scared when the music started to get more intense. I hope you all enjoy the movie. It’s only the music that makes it seem like it’s scary.
