Suspenseful, scary...decent story, interesting characters.
14 August 2006 | by (marietta, GA) – See all my reviews

This movie obviously didn't have the big budget of The Ring," "Saw," "Hostel," "Pulse," etc., but I would rate it about the same for substance and style.

I got caught up in the story (never dragged...never boring), and was caught off guard a few times by intermittent shock and gore.

Fairly realistic storyline, with believable characters...pretty good acting. Overall, the film manages to stay semi-serious and fairly dramatic, yet doesn't get melodramatic and ridiculous with supernatural flair and cinematic effects.

Horror fans should give it a chance.

Worth a rental!
