    Worst movie ever. So cheesy and predicable. Not even scary.

    The book was outstanding! The movie sticks close to the story line. The trailers seem exciting and as intense as each page of this thriller. With a total of 503 pages, it only took me four nights to read it. You can't put this book down and it looks like you can't stay in your seat with this movie.

    No better than a Twilight Zone episode. Really.
