Well-crafted but predictable film by M. Night Shyamalan about an isolated 19th-century village located in the middle of a forest inhabited by fearsome creatures, discouraging anyone from venturing to the outlying towns. Production values and performances are generally fine, and Shyamalan sustains a reasonably suspenseful mood throughout, but all the fine trappings can't conceal what is essentially a thin story, with a disappointing payoff. A very short violent episode, some smeared blood, some shots of skinned dead animals, and an intense atmosphere of impending doom. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents are strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
