Advance word that this would be the scariest horror since Amityville proves well wide of the mark.

Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga play "world-renowned" paranormal investigators summoned to a house in Rhode Island, 1971, where strange goings-on are frightening the bejesus out of a young family.

Weird bruising, clocks stopping, dogs dying, plus all the usual creaks and bumps, eventually lead our investigative duo to believe the house is in full demonic possession.

It's based on the true stories of husband-and-wife ghostbusters, but in this case the Devil really isn't in the details.
