Enjoyable film, really well executed with some genuine moments of terror (the projector scene and the visit to the house). Was more of an Amblin adventure with horror elements then an out and out horror film which I thought was a good approach.
The kids were all well developed apart from the kid who’s only personality is that he’s Jewish and the most scared? Thought that was a bit odd. The adults were all properly horrid especially Eddie’s mum. Overall whilst I thought it was a strong film, it lacked something to make it original, rather than just effective.
