The New Daughter

1

Family horror story set in the backwoods of South Carolina

What’s scarier, this straight-to- DVD family horror story or the fact that it stars Kevin Costner? Yep, the man who once danced with wolves props up this bargain-basement clag about a divorced dad who moves his kids to the South Carolina backwoods. There, his teen daughter Luisa (Pan’s Labyrinth’s Ivana Baquero) is faced with monsters as well as growing pains: bloke-in-suit beasties that crawl out of the Native American burial mound in the garden. Forget any insights into adolescence; the focus is all on Costner, who has rarely looked less interested.
