I have seen this movie on the fantasy film festival in Hamburg. In the first few minutes I thought something like "Damn, seems like a stupid story and a bad leading actor". Anyway, even so the story seems to be quite predictable, some effects resembles strongly to "the ring" and I didn't like the leading actors and his struggling tries to act without seeming to act, I voted 8 out of 10 for this movie. Why? Because the movie really scared the hell out of me. Fast cuts, horrifying pictures and suddenly load alarming horror music kept me pushing myself deeper and deeper in my seat. I surprised myself thinking something like "No, please, don't look under the bed". But guess what, he will look under the bed and even some more scary places. If you are looking for a movie that urges your wanna-be girlfriend to move a little closer to you, I strongly recommend this movie. But beware when your girls frantically grabs your hand, it is not you who ends up freaking out... PS: On the festival there are usually people used to all kind of horrifying "scared the s... out of me" movies, but this one kept the whole audience gasping and holding their breath...
