It has a setting and idea that could have proven to be terrifying but in the end the scariest thing about it is how bad it is. Because the movie isn't scary it ends up being nothing more than a boring waste of time, and we all know how valuable you time is so just skip this movie. Also helping bring the movie down is the weak script and bad acting. Only one good thing can be said about this movie and that's that Ashley Greene is super hot, but no matter how hot she is this movie is still a waste of time. Expand

Would rate a 7 if not for the terrible soundtrack.

This movie is sold boldly advertising the movie's very final frame, which was even at the end of the trailer, thus ruining any shock or surprise value their last and biggest card could have possibly held. Outside of that, I'm surprised to see such low ratings here - it's really nowhere near that bad a film. Yeah, it's pretty unsurprising - but on the other hand, the characters aren't written as laughable cardboard cutouts who can't hope to pull off a believable person. The characters here are likeable and genuine, and even though the ending wasn't what I was looking for, the rest of the movie to a lesser degree was sort of what I wanted to see. It doesn't rely on cheap scares or gore to pretend to frighten us - it relies on PG-13, if not cliched, images and suspense tactics that are decent, if not "seen before". Overall, I rate it only slightly above a 5 for giving me some real characters for once. Expand

I admit the acting wasn't great. Come on though, the story is very original and very entertaining. The execution was also great. I thought this was a great start for Todd Lincoln's directorial debut.

Didn't offend me as much as I thought it would. It had some interesting ideas that never really flourished, sadly, but there were one or two really cool and creepy scenes.

It had some interesting ideas that never really flourished, sadly, but there were one or two really cool and creepy scenes. The scene in the hotel was a good one, and there's another scene were the main chick is nailing a door shut, but the camera pans back, and we see that she's actually inside the locked door with the ghost/demon/whatever. The rest was pretty mediocre. The first thirty minutes were painfully boring, but if you can get past that, it's a good way to waste a night with a friend or two. Expand
