The Watcher in the Woods


Time Out says

The horror movie, Disney-style. After an American couple and their two daughters move into an English country house, one of the girls (Johnson) imagines she is being watched by a creature that lurks in the woods. Her experiences seem to be linked to the disappearance, thirty years before, of another young girl, creepy old crone Davis' daughter. When it became obvious that the film's mix of cutesy sentiment and vague scariness wasn't working, the company ordered whole sequences to be rewritten, re-shot or re-edited, then imposed a stupid ending that explains precisely nothing.
