While she was making the award-season rounds for "Zero Dark Thirty," Jessica Chastain projected a much different screen image as the rather Goth heroine of this horror tale from executive producer Guillermo del Toro ("Pan's Labyrinth").
She plays the girlfriend of the uncle (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, "Game of Thrones") of two children who vanished after their father killed their mother, and when they're located several years later, very spooky doings accompany their return. Megan Charpentier and Isabelle Nelisse are effectively eerie as the youngsters. DVD extras: "making-of" documentary; audio commentary by director and co-writer Andres Muschietti and producer and co-writer Barbara Muschietti; deleted scenes. *** (PG-13: AS, V) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
