    I saw this the other day. It's so rare to find a good haunted house movie these days, and this one didn't break the pattern.

    Startle scenes every 2 minutes, nothing scary ever happens, and the story just doesn't move. An hour in, they were still busy trying to make you jump, instead of advancing the story so the audience can know what the hell is going on.

    :down:

    5/10, and that's because the acting and sound were pretty good, despite the shitty writing. +1 because the premise actually had potential, but -1 for never coming close to realizing it.

    I've seen much worse, but you didn't really miss out by skipping it.

    5/10? I gave it a 2/10 for being so unoriginal. Fuck that movie for trying to suck as bad as it did.

    I was really looking forward to it from the commercials, but when I finally got around to renting it, I was disappointed.
