Scary enough to pass your time in your boring night
I rent this movie from the store next door without high expectation and even so, I turned it off after 1 hour and fast forward it to the end. The movie wasn't too bad but ,on the other's hand, not the not-to-be-missed one either.
Some scenes, especially in the first 45 minutes, are quite scary but in the second half, its pace slowed down a bit. It's the universal rule that a ghost story will not be scary anymore if you see a ghost clearly. Even me know that, why didn't the director?
Over all, you'll find this movie good enough for a boring night with nothing else to do. My vote is 6.
And one other thing, why people have to run away from ghost? Why don't they fight? If a ghost can hurt us, why can't we hurt them back.
