Elizabeth Olsen (Sarah) plays the “girl in jeopardy” in this thriller, set in a family’s creaky old lake house that they’re about to sell. A girl, suddenly alone in a boarded-up house in the middle of nowhere. There’s no power, no phone, and someone, something, is in the house with her. Most of what we see is what Sarah can see right in front of her, and Olsen’s talent carries an entire film of extreme close-ups. The directors give away too much in the end, but it’s a worthy horror installment.
