There are a ton of great scares in this movie. It literaly keeps you on the edge of your seat from beginning to about 3/4ths of the way through. The ending moves a little towards the goofy but that doesnt keep it from being one of the best original horror ideas in YEARS. If your tired of remakes and want something a bit new check this one out.… Expand
From the images floating around the internet, I had extremely high hopes for this one. What started out as a truly uneasy environment full of suspense and genuine fear, later turned into a finale that had me laughing at the very "monsters" themselves. The plot has been done a hundred time before, and some of the acting is a bit... "off". While the first hour is actually scary and uncomfortable to watch, it quickly goes from long, drawn out scenes of the protagonist walking through the house at night trying to find where all the noises keep coming from, to a "Hey audience!!! Look at this monster!!! It's so scary!! Be scared!!! WooOOOooo!!"
To be honest, if it had ended 30 minutes earlier than it did, it would have been a decent horror flick in itself, but the plot gets, for the lack of a better word, "cheesy", and feeble attempts at comic relief make it all the less frightful.
This is the kind of thing you watch with your friends, but start chit-chatting half way through the "scares".… Expand
