Don't Knock Twice

Don't Knock Twice ★★★

I'm surprised this is rated so low.

Good acting with realistic and natural performances of the dramatic dynamic between a mother and daughter. Most of the "horror" scenes feature great dramatic build-ups filled with tension and deliver the shocks/goods which are very scary. Plus one big boon: finally a horror film that breaks away from an always annoying tradition of the person that "knows" what's going on either not communicating it efficiently or at all, and then the person they tell it to either ignores them completely or does not even vaguely take into consideration what they're being told. Thankfully in this film people talk about the situation in a reasonable way. It's not an amazing film, but it provides a creepy good time and is well-worth seeing for horror fans.
