    It looks good from the trailer but usually if a film has lots of text about how amazing it is and lots of audience reaction in the trailer then it's not usually a good sign. Will have to see.

    Pretty slow in the beginning (really the only worthwhile things to watch are when Micah, the boyfriend, sets up his camera in their bedroom and film everything at night). Even though the movie was like 1 hour & 30 minutes, it felt REALLY short in the end. Kinda lame, take a lot of cliches from past ghost/haunting movies (moving doors with no wind, lights turning on by themselves, footsteps in a 2 story house).

    SPOILERS

    The ending was alright but the animations for the girl were old & tired by now. When she kills Micah, the way she crawls reminds me of the Grudge and when her face becomes twisted & demonic, reminded me exactly of the vampire faces from 30 Days Of Night, plus her face and "other voice" were cheesy looking & sounding when Micah is surprised she wants to stay longer in the house when they were about to leave to a hotel

    A few scenes were creepy, but nothing scary. The acting by the girl was terrible!! Besides that it wasn't too bad, but it's one of those movies you wouldn't like on dvd.

    Spoiler
    The scenes I liked was when that bitch got pulled out of bed and dragged down the hall haha. And, the shadows and footprints were kinda creepy.

    The last scene was good until they showed her face. It looked low budget.

    I'd give it a 6.5/10

    It's very slow and boring for the first 45 minutes. After that it just gets a little spooky for about 5 minutes. Nothing scary that will make you jump in the whole movie.

    Yea I agree with u on that. The dude hittin the camera took the whole theater by surprise, but it got gay after that when she looked into the camera

    The chicks acting started to worsen when she had to start getting emotional, and she jus couldent pull it off. But her rack was pretty big and she had a fat ass so I didnt really care

    I personally really liked the movie, I thought it was well paced, and in general pretty scary. What I liked best was that it was scary in the subtleties of the effects as opposed to being "in your face" moments. Of course those kind of moments can be done in a dumb way (see the remake of "Friday the Thirteenth") or in a cool overthetop way (See "Drag me to Hell" or "Evil Dead"). But this film reminded me more of the pacing in Roman Polanski's "The Tenant" (also very dope), slow moving, and just building until the final climax. I thought it was an ill flick
