I was surprised when, after some time with effective atmosphere,a very weird, silly occurrence changed the film's tone. However...
1 - When its scary, its actually scary, featuring atmospheric scenes that build tension very well.
2 - When its funny, its actually funny, perhaps because of the contrast with the serious scenes, and actually handles the switch very well - usually it takes itself as seriously as any individual scene needs to be, which occasionally resulted what just happened, so perhaps this film isn't for everyone - it's very weird.
3 - I was considering actually dropping the rating of any horror film focusing on teenagers - fortunately these ones are fleshed out somewhat, and aren't nearly as annoying as the ones found elsewhere in the genre,
