This example of prepackaged horror is so by-the-numbers that even the jump-scares don’t cause much of a jump.

Cast: Noomi Rapace, Sophie Nelisse, Indira Varma

Disposable action entertainment – a throw-away title that’s not bad enough to turn off but not good enough to seek out.

Mired in clichés with a narrative constrained by a bland and generic structure.

A kluge of bad science and worse science fiction clichés, it tries to be atmospheric and scary but succeeds only at being frustrating and tedious.
