The Disappointments Room

After one of their kids died, a family moved into a different house, by then, a series of unusual events starting to happen while they are being haunted by the house they’re living in.

The Disappointments Room is a disappointment itself. A little interesting plot fully ruined by its lame execution, where, it seems that the actors’ efforts we’re put into trash.

I personally don’t think that the problems entirely lies on its director, D.J. Caruso, where he’s proven that he’s also good at some action-thriller flicks like Eagle Eye (2008) and xXx: Return Of Xander Cage (2016 / 2017). The biggest chunk of failure in this movie is the limited budget paired with an ambitious story, a tale that could’ve been deeper with a more frightening house, like a gothic-type-mansion-like and a more believable threat.

Kate Beckinsale, as we all know, is a well established actress, her skills are unquestionable and we are complacent on how the other actors performed as well, but what we can all see are wasted efforts all around.

The Disappointments Room has its good actors and potentials to be a terrifying psychological thriller but the poorly written script and dull story causes this horror a forgettable-no-scare-horror-film.
