  • Nowhere near as bad as its invisible marketing strategy might suggest. But that's not to imply that it's worth seeking out.

  • The film's riffs on the fear fathers have of teenage daughters' mood swings are its only strength, but Berdejo is too timid to actually examine all the ramifications thereof.

  • Does tread with clunky boots upon well-worn horror movie territory. Every ominous sign is preceded by full moons, slithering fog, and thunderclaps.

  • Unfortunately for all of the good work, like the good-looking cinematography, and Costner's performance, it doesn't quite land the punch it needs to stand out as one of the better horrors of recent years.

  • Frustratingly uneven...

  • It's far from perfect, but The New Daughter is elegantly crafted (cinematography by Checco Varese is gorgeous) and mindful of tension, not just splatter, sneaking around pleasingly.

    This horror flick about an unknown force from burial grounds changing Costner's daughter has little to add to the genre. It still works pretty okay for most of its running time, mostly thanks to the cast: But it all falls to pieces during the disappointing showdown and the pretty insulting ending. Meh.

    Costner slumming it in Nick Cage style territory here, its quite dull at times and Costner feels like he should be in a better movie, the story isnt that great, and the last third doesnt help things
