A bunch of college students decide to take the tour, and wind up in Rustin Parr's house. There, they decide to camp for the evening, but in the morning, they realize they didn't sleep and they don't remember anything that happened the previous night. From there, they go back to town, and discover that something...or someone has come with them. Written by Johnny

Did You Know?


Unhappy with Joe Berlinger's version of the film, Artisan opted to re-shoot certain scenes to add more "traditional" horror movie elements and re-cut the movie to make it more commercial. Berlinger repeatedly states on the DVD commentary that he doesn't like the changes that were made and that they ruin the ambiguous tone of the plot. See more »

People complained that "nothing happened" in the original film. Well, NOTHING happens in this one. The acting is so terrible that the whole theater was laughing at it. The original film hardly had any comic relief moments, this one is filled with it. The original was shot like a documentary, this had "hip 90's music" and tons of great "pro-pot smoking" scenes that it made me ill.
