The hide and seek song. So cynical when it's being played for the first time. A fucked up family with an even more fucked up tradition. Stupid and thus great concept for a horror flick. Also because of the location; a huge mansion. Probably could have been used better. You'd expect it to become like a character, but it never entirely does. Instead, the movie pushes the funny button, often all the way down. That didn't always work for me. I would have enjoyed this much more if it toned down the comedy a bit. Same goes for Samara Weaving, who acts on a tiring overdrive. And two last second twists, guys? That's two too many. The scenes with the butler are my favorites.
