They Wait Reviews

Director Ernie Barbarash makes judicious use of CGI trickery -- in one key scene, he cleverly shocks his audience into laughing -- but at heart, he's an old-school traditionalist when it comes to scary stuff.

There are elements of a good fright flick and intriguing ghost story in They Wait. It's too bad that they are overshadowed by all the bad aspects " terrible dialogue and cheesy special effects and makeup.

Initially promising for its attempt to situate Asian supernatural motifs within a North American context, They Wait is itself too derivative of its own movie ancestors to yield fresh scares.
