The time is out of joint in this haunted-house story, remade from a Uruguayan thriller La Casa Muda.

Elizabeth Olsen is good as the young woman who's returned with her father and uncle to clear out the family summer home, only to find distressing reverberations from her past.

Alas, the subtleties of the original have been mostly blunted in the retelling. The cache of incriminating Polaroids that were chillingly revealed over the closing credits of the first film are here witheld – and therefore useless as a means of suspense.
