Trivia

When Mary is surfing the Net looking for info, she reaches a page that reads "Movie Makers Tap Into Twisted Myths and Modern Technology to Manipulate Audience".

Also, it has a 3 stars rating (pressumably out of 5), a R-Rating by MPAA "for strong violence, language and some sexual content" and its running time: 01:40. See more »

A surprise
16 July 2003 | by (Memphis, TN) – See all my reviews

Now I must admit I originally rented it for the role played by Drew Lachey. I figured it was going to be just another cheap horror flick. I don't know whether it was being in a strange house or the odd sounds we were hearing throughout the movie but it did leave us in suspense and did scare us a few times.

The movie is a movie within itself. I had my guess of who was behind it, and I did guess correctly. But it had a lot of good quality scenes in it and I do recommend this.
