We get to enter the world of creepy kids here and it is very effective. From the moment you meet the siblings you know something creepy is going on about them. while the horrors committed in the film are typical of what we have come to expect. It is the innocent reaction to what happens that is terrifying. We get to experience the terrors of being so dedicated to the Bible and the lasting effects it will have on a family.
