Honestly, I wasn’t expecting much when I started up this latest Kevin Costner flick. I had never even heard of it, till random internet browsing showed a small scene in the latter portion of the movie, depicting what I thought to be a rather interesting creature. My curiosity proved right!
The movie appears grossly under budget, but it still doesn’t take away from the over all effect of the film. The movie really gets under your skin with the atmosphere it delivers: A single father, with two children moving away from urban society to bond closer to his offspring, but struggling to deal with a teenage daughter trying to find her place in life.
Costner provides an extremely rich performance, you will buy him being a caring father who is at wits end dealing with his troubled teen. Ivana Baquerio nails it as a moody teen who starts taking on new personality traits after the discovery of an odd mound on the family’s new property.
As the film progresses you see a loving father tossed into the mouth of madness as his daughter grows increasingly strange and violent. I would say even though this film is straight out of 2009, it is arguably Costner’s greatest film (purely my opinion)
So why don’t you drop over to Netflix and check it out!
