    I haven't seen this, but I've been hearing lots of good things. If anyone here has seen it, give us your thoughts (without being too spoilerific, of course.)

    Here is the list of cities and theaters it has/is opened/opening in:

    To be honest, I am not super-impressed by the trailer. It seems primarily intended to show us how the audience was reacting from seeing the movie, but the footage from the movie that is shown in the trailer is nothing special to me. Nonetheless, the reviews are mostly really positive.

    Anyway, here's the trailer:

    It opens in twenty more cities this coming weekend. Go to that link for the movie website. If your city isn't listed, you can click a link to "demand" it.

    I heard about it and looked around to see if any theaters were playing it around here to no avail. Just found out last night though it's coming to Archlight Hollywood, although it's going to be a drive, I'm going. Better be fucking worth it.

    I showed the trailer to my girlfriend and she was like fuck no i'm not going to go see that. So it looks like I might be going solo on this one :noes:

    I saw it last night, if you're into this kind of thing you're going to have tons of fun. Spooky as hell and the audience reaction was fantastic. The use of sound in the movie to create tensions is dynamic.

    Oh, but the ending sucks. But the rest of the movie is worth it, for sure.

    If it's in your area grab your ticket early and arrive an hour ahead of time. The line wrapped around the theater!

    I saw the midnight showing in Phoenix last week. Definitely get there early. They had it on 2 screens and both theaters were full 20-30 minutes prior. I loved the movie. It was made to look and seem real and it really plays on your own instincts and emotions. If you are into creepy movies then you will really like this one.

    I would suggest you go see it. You are going to hear something before it comes out and thats going to ruin it for you.

    thought it was pretty boring/fake and not scary at all

    I actually like it. For something made with only ten to fifteen thousands dollars it was pretty good.
