I agree with your assessment. I went to take my teen daughter who wanted to see it, even after I told her about the bad reviews. In my view this is more of a suspense or thriller than horror. And I found the attempt at one-shot subjective perspective more irritating than helpful, even though I recognize it is supposed to support the "revelation" at the end that Sarah is working through her own psychological issues rather than encountering a supernatural other. While some laud this as a breakthrough in a tired American horror cycle, I'll look for hope elsewhere.
