The pathological mind can only satisfy its need for the other by consuming the other; leading, once again, to great need and of course the cycle begins again.

I've seen the trailer for this movie some time ago, and I decided to watch it. It's one of those horror movies with eerie sets and shots. They chose Bucharest, Romania as a main location, so I found familiar places in it. The campus featured in the film is the one from "Politehnica" University.
The movie itself is well written and has a coherent plot. Of course, there are times when you can predict the next turn of events. But this does not happen very often.
The special effects are OK, not dated or something. They integrate very well in the unfolding of the plot. The soundtrack is also good, many low frequency noises, kind of electric ones (reminds me of "The Ring").
For a remake of a J horror movie, this one does a pretty good job. Worth watching if you have a couple of hours to spare.
