This schlocky horror movie with Robert De Niro isn't as bad as Godsend (2004), but its gimmicky script is unworthy of a cast that also includes Dylan Baker, Amy Irving, Elisabeth Shue, and Melissa Leo. De Niro plays a New York City psychologist whose little girl (Dakota Fanning) has been traumatized by her mother's suicide. After father and daughter move out to the country for some quiet, strange things begin to happen in the house at night, which the girl blames on an imaginary friend. De Niro gives a crafty performance, and director John Polson (Swimfan) maintains a pleasantly low-key suspense. but the ending is a disappointment. R, 100 min.
