Kevin Costner in a 'scary' movie is the scariest part of this train wreck of a movie. I couldn't make myself watch more than 30 minutes of this before I had to turn it off. The story has been done so many times that you don't need to watch this one.

This film was mediocre at best and as horror flicks goes, there wasn't really anything remotely horrific or even suspenseful about it; except maybe the ridiculousness of the plot, surpassed only by the unfathomable ending. The characters were one dimensional and completely unoriginal-- the barely there parent, a rebellious teen and the younger sibling who acts as the buffer to the conflicting parent and teen. It was really a shame because the principal actors were likeable enough and seems to be capable of delivering awesome performances (remember Kevin Costner in a little film called "Dances with Wolves"?); unfortunately, they just didn't seem to have the material to really flex their acting muscles.

Not a bad horror flick. Liked the mound walkers-good creature creation.

Good performance by Costner, but a lackluster script kills it dead.

Twisted, frightening, sad, grotesque, thrilling, and utterly awesome.

For the most part this was actually a fairly effective horror/thriller, but it fumbles towards the third act and the ending felt completely rushed.

Pretty good "demon things". Could have removed at least an hour from the movie of unneeded info/scenes. Ending was absolutely terrible. Talk about leaving you hanging.

Alien/Creature from underground...

It's effort is pleasing, but doesn't offer much new. The cliche add-ons every 5 minutes don't help either.

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.

An entertaining, but uneven horror flick

Not bad, but the ending could have been better.

Not at all what I was expecting. This actually made me hate Kevin Costner alot less!! I really liked this movie, it was a little different than the usual.

Decent effort by Kevin Costner. More of a creepy drama. Ending is a bit unclear.

Kevin Costner dives into the horror genre and provides a good albeit forgettable flick with The New Daughter. Costner plays a single father who moves his two children to an isolated home in the middle of the woods. Strange things start to occur when a mound in the backyard is discovered. The New Daughter starts of strong with a creepy figure on the rooftop next to Costner's daughters window but slowly becomes a bit dull before picking up the pace and finishing strong. Ivana Baquero gives an admirable performance as Costner's daughter and while the movie has its moments nothing significant sets it apart as a classic of the genre.

I thought this horror thriller did a good job of building suspense and it had a really good atmosphere. It was never quite scary enough and the ending was kind of unsatisfactory but overall it was entertaining.

I enjoyed this movie.. Kevin Costner at his age still is a damn good actor... The story was a bit reedy, but lacked a lot of info about the mound, yeah I get it and all, but still should have a little but more action on the object of why the reason things were making the ugly thick caterpillar eye browsed girl was acting "NEW". Ugh. So so.... 3 stars

the one half star for Kevin and the house in the film. for the rest...... WTF?
I guess Kevin needs to support all his 7 kids and his wife. nothing else justifies sheit like this.
