There's little in this family-plagued-by-otherworldly-forces tale that you haven't seen before, but good acting by reliable stars goes a long way in selling the premise again. Keri Russell - who's had a resurgence this year, thanks also to her FX series "The Americans" - and Josh Hamilton ("J. Edgar") play spouses and parents who come to believe their house also contains unwelcome visitors.
The always-welcome J.K. Simmons ("The Closer") plays an authority on the paranormal who tries to help the couple. DVD extras: audio commentary by writer-director Scott Stewart, producer Jason Blum, executive producer Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and editor Peter Gvozdas; deleted and alternate scenes. *** (PG-13: AS, P, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
