The plot, rather than having you on the edge of your seat, will have you slumped down in it, drinking that sweet, sweet Pepsi-Cola you bought at the grocery store where you picked up this movie. The acting is nothing special. The soundtrack is boring. The movie relies on blood and jumpscares too much to say, "It was so spooky!" but rather, "Eh, it startled me a couple times." It isn't a 0 because it isn't awful. It's just bad. It's mediocre at best, and not worth any amount you pay for the disc or on Amazon or anywhere. As for the ending, instead of making us go like, "OH. EM. JEEEEEEEEEE!" we ended up chuckling at that excuse for a sad ending. Basically, don't watch it. It isn't worth two or three hours.
