Oddly, Charlie Heaton gets an "Introducing" credit, even though he had already been in several other movies before this one. The "Introducing" credit is normally reserved for first time film actors. See more »

Hey. It's going to be okay.
Just tell me we're doing the right thing.
No, sweetheart, I know you want to fix this. It's what you do. But we've tried. All right? We've been trying and look where it's gotten us.

And I think the space is gonna be good for him. For all of us. Besides, it's a good school. He'll be home by the end of the summer.

It's a psychological thriller film with scary moments and some jump scares in dream sequences. I'm not sure what good thing I'll say about this movie, but the story is really, really weak. No memorable quotes, weak twist and acting. It seems like they tried hard to make a movie like Orphan (2009) which is a strong psychological thriller. It's just a thriller without the thrill.
