    Los Angeles Times

    As for Gellar, she seems game but glum, treading water in a role that represses her comic talents and leaves her little to do but suffer in silence.

    You may see scarier movies this year, but none so redolent of decomposition.

    Forgettable PG-13 pic will particularly strike fans of harder-edged recent horror pix as much ado about not much.
