    a good thriller. in a way it is for teens and in a way it is not. i think that teenagers tend to like little more "gore" in there horror movies, which this did not have, but i also think the actors and plot would appeal more to teenagers. alot of screams and jumps in the theatre i was in and it was veryy suspensful, although there were no real "twists"or anything. go see this in theatres or deffinately rent it on dvd when it comes out.
