This movie didn\'t live up to its potential in almost any way. The only real scares come from things jumping out at you from around the corner. Felt more like a post-apocalyptic experience than a horror movie.

I just rented this and I usually don\'t like stuff by this guy but this really wasn\'t that bad. It held me for the entire movie. Worth watching but it won\'t win awards!!
