"Afflicted" is as emotionally involving as a really accomplished special-effects sizzle reel.

Runs smack into a number of generic clichés, from the back-and-forth bickering about how to deal with the situation to a lazy underlying misogyny.

A nifty found-footage thriller that marks a promising debut for writing-directing duo Clif Prowse and Derek Lee.

Ambitious in scope and practically flawless in execution, Afflicted is good news for horror fans seeking something fresh and chilling from two impressively assured young filmmakers.

Nonetheless, we all know this terrain pretty well by now, and as Derek begins to change, each phase of his transformation feels overly familiar to anyone with a working knowledge of popular horror tropes.

Puts enough of a new spin on old nightmares to stake a claim all its own.
