An American Haunting

Why oh why did someone give money to Courtney Solomon to make another movie? We all saw the cinematic atrocity that was Dungeons & Dragons (based on the grosses it looks like most of you didn't), but someone out there thought he was a decent enough filmmaker to finance another dud with him at the helm. This ultra boring piece-o-shite is the final result. While it has a fine cast in Donald Sutherland, Sissy Spacek and Rachel Hurd-Wood, they are given nothing to do but react to bad wire work in this lame retelling of The Exorcist, only set in the late 1800s. It's slow, meandering and all the other synonyms of boring. And what exactly was the point of the current day wraparound story? Oh yeah, Courtney Solomon thought up of that part. Figures. Worthless.
