Say what you will about Kevin Costner’s latest endeavor “The New Daughter”, but at least it’s not another bloody baseball movie. Thank God for that, right? Unfortunately, the Luiso Berdejo-lensed thriller looks like something you’d find in the direct-to-video section of your favorite locally-owned video store, which may explain why Anchor Bay is handling distribution. What’s more, the film’s storyline — a father wonders if supernatural forces are responsible for the bizarre events taking place at his secluded farmhouse — isn’t exactly a creative revelation, and the trailer fails to generate any excitement whatsoever. Still, it’s interesting to see Costner tackle a horror movie. A potentially boring horror movie, yes, but a horror movie nonetheless.
“The New Daughter” is scheduled to possess DVD and Blu-ray on May 18th. The trailer in all its lackluster glory awaits your attention.
