“The Disappointments Room” (Rogue)

Marcia DeRousse and Kate Beckinsale star in a scene from the movie"The Disappointments Room." The Catholic News Service classification is A-III -- adults. (CNS/Rogue)

By Catholic News Service

A combination of psychological drama and the dependable haunted-house formula turns into a complete botch. A grieving architect (Kate Beckinsale) moves to a creaky old mansion with her husband and young son to restore her mental health following the death of their infant daughter, but she ends up confronting ghosts of the original residents.

Director D.J. Caruso, who co-wrote the screenplay with Wentworth Miller, puts characters in peril a few times, but relies on cliches, including a possessed black dog and even bats in the attic.

A scene of attempted suicide, occasional gore, physical violence and fleeting rough and crude language. Catholic News Service classification, A-III — adults. Motion Picture Association of America rating, R — restricted. Under 17 requires accompanying parent or adult guardian.
