    The inexplicably terrifying ending is good for a month's worth of nightmares -- no small thing for a movie in such a saturated field. show more

    Terrible movie. Nothing scary about it! I don\'t know what these critics are smoking if they think that this movie is the least bit good. Shaky camera, poor lighting, and there is NOTHING that ever pops up and scares you. If you think that this is scarier than paranormal activity, then you have the WORST taste in movies.
