Goofs

When Christy Wescot (Nora Zehetner) goes to Amy Locke (Jessica Amlee)'s room for the first night, a camera takes her picture, it's clearly a compact digital camera on a tripod, but it sounds like an SLR camera. Then Amy tells Christy that she has set the camera to take picture every half an hour to picture the dark thing. Later Amy is showing Christy photos taken with the camera from two nights ago, and although earlier we saw the camera was on a tripod, but the frame in the photos change in each picture. See more »

Likable mystery thriller
9 November 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I have to say that I didn't expect much from this film when I rented it today, but I was really surprised by it.

Although the film's story is quite a cliché as is suggested by the back of the DVD case, in my opinion it's done surprisingly good. A pretty conclusive story, except perhaps for the start of it all, not too bad acting and a nice music score form into a decent mystery thriller. I liked how the heroine actually investigates quite a bit throughout the movie instead of just getting the conclusions laid out for her in front of her eyes. Additionally the film doesn't use too many flashy, cheap shock moments and successfully tries to depend more on the mystery itself. And, contrary to the cliché, the heroine doesn't behave exceptionally stupid all the time.

On the downside you won't have many surprises coming in the story if you've seen at least a few mystery thrillers. The ending actually managed to satisfy me, a feat rarely achieved by that genre of movies.

If you like mystery thrillers and always thought that those loud, noisy "in your face" shock moments are overused you should try this movie.
