Tyler Perry's Boo! A Madea Halloween made me more anxious.
Some of the frights work reasonably well; and Ms. Ferland is convincing. But there aren't enough surprises or innovations to make this one stand out in the sea of horror fare that comes along this time of year.
"The Unspoken" has so much plot that it really shouldn't need to rely as much as it does on big, loud sounds. After a while, the assaultive music becomes a tip-off that the movie's not working.
The phrase "low-budget horror" once held out the promise of seedy grisly sensation that big-budget horror wouldn't give you. But in the case of a movie like "The Unspoken," it just means: standard glossy horror tropes executed with scary ineptitude.
Wilson overexplains his concept in dialogue and won't let the pictures speak for themselves, even though he's got at least two stellar, horrifying set pieces here ...
The Unspoken may deliver a WTF ending, but its goofiness seriously undermines the impact.
Unspoken traffics in suspenseless setups and poltergeist shenanigans we've seen countless times before.
Atmosphere is paramount as it should be, but sadly it's created almost solely from jump scares the prologue quickly numbs us towards as soon as things get going.
It feels like Sheldon Wilson tossed a bunch of third-hand scares in a blender and set it to puree, resulting in a gray, flavorless sludge.
