  1. Despite a really stellar cast, I found Burnt Offerings--as well as the original novel by Robert Marasco--to be decidedly unimpressive.

  2. Will: I'm with you. It had a few decent moments, but it was way too understated for its own good. It never went for the big scare, not even once, which definitely hurt the final product.
