The Messengers

Hip-hot Asian filmmakers Danny and Oxide Pang (The Eye, Bangkok Dangerous--both of which are being remade stateside) offer up their first American film, a haunted house thriller wedged firmly in the Far East mold. Kristen Stewart (Zathura) moves to an isolated farm in the middle of North Dakota with parents and is soon spying creepy ghosts in every corner. There are a few atmospheric scares, but it's slowgoing, and borrows quite a bit from films like The Grudge. 84 minutes PG-13.
