It is not deep, but it is fun to watch. It does have a bit more of an edge to it than other similar films.
There are better movies of two hours length. I loved the actress'performance.
A movie that not only functions as a solid scarefest but a razor-sharp satire.
An old-fashioned movie made with new-fashioned finesse.
all i can say is do not waste your time. this movie is so so so pathetic from start to finish , rip offs from a multitude of other far better films. warning if you choose to watch it you might want to gauge out your eyes i know i did. i remember when the syfy channel put out very good movies all the time worthy of watching over and over again but no more it seems 90% of the time their movies are horrific.
One of the best horror movies I've seen in a very long time. Truly heartfelt with easy to relate to characters you can connect with. The story is very well composed with plenty of suspense building and no jump scares, The acting is incredible and you can tell these actors are experienced and are on their way to the big time. This movie takes you on a wild and scary trip through these peoples' lives and troubles as well as the decisions they have to make. A movie like this is unmatched in my opinion by anything released in the past 20 maybe 30 years. The cgi is amazing and life like which just adds to an already intense atmosphere. Ominous is most definitely a must see. Though sequels tend to be disappointing I can't help but hope they make another.
Horrible poor cliché of a movie. Terrible imitation of Godsend,The Omen,and Orphan. The acting is bad, although of the three main characters, the mother is the best. The little boy playing the child is contrived, stilted,one of the worst actors and at times comical.He is clearly playing a part. The "writer" does not even know basic grammar-to my mother and I instead of the proper object of the preposition-me. He makes this error throughout the movie's dialogue. I watched while I waited for a phone call so I did see pretty much all the film. Somehow I thought it might get better, but no such luck. Movies today are rarely horror, but too frequently horrible. I love a good fright but not silly nonsense that has no subtlety, artistry, or fear elements. Ominous is what this movie is-a warning to steer clear.
Terrible, cliché ridden crap movie. I thought this was going to be a pretty good movie and looked forward to watching. Boy was I wrong. This is a very slow moving, predictable piece of terrible cinema. I wouldn't watch again if my life depended on it. Bad acting, bad storyline and bad script all combine to make one awful experience. A lot of SyFys original movies are pretty good, and this one had potential, however ended up falling flat. This story had been told a hundred different ways in a hundred other much better movies than this one. Do yourself a favor and skip this one. Even reading a dictionary is a better idea than watching this drivel.
