much better than its reputation
12 May 2004 | by (sweden) – See all my reviews

i do not know why people do not like this movie.I think its a great horror movie. Well I must admit it gave me a few laughs but it never really became silly. The movie is about a bunch of teenagers who comes to an abandoned house they are going to have a party in the house but is the house abandoned. no instead it has a lot of various monsters inside. there is also a old sorcerer who wants to wake up his wife from the dead. who will survive? i personally think this movie is underestimated and deserves a much better reputation. I have seen much worse horror movies. if you find it buy it but do not pay to much for it *S* i bet you will remember it after seeing it
