Scary Movie
4 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I haven't seen this movie in almost 20 years, but I remember being really freaked out by it. It was pretty creepy. I must see it again. I will find it and watch it!!

If you like movies that deal with supernatural topics, this is a decent one to watch. If you fly a lot, this is a scary one to watch. Basically this one woman is the sole survivor of a plane crash and death and the dead (not the Grateful) are trying to let her know she should have died. It's amazing to everyone that hears about it or knows her that she lived, it's a big deal and how they portray the attempts to inform her of what should have been her death are pretty cool for a movie made pre computers and super duper special effects.
