Trivia

The bumper sticker on the Bowen vehicle during the last scene of the film says: Hooper High School. This is a direct reference to Tobe Hooper, who directed the 1982 original version. See more »

Goofs

At one point in the film the family are asked to carry GPS trackers. These were supplied so as to track the family no matter were they are. Since the film takes place inside a family home the GPS trackers would be useless since they need direct or "line of sight to the sky" to "see" satellites in order to accurately track via GPS.

Loved this movie!!!
24 May 2015 | by See all my reviews

I wasn't expecting to get scared at all during this movie but scared I got! They had some really good jump scares! I know most scary movie enthusiasts don't like jump scares and say they are cheap but I love them because that's why I go to scary movies... To get scared! I also love how they used elements from the original but also threw in some new stuff that made it scarier than the original. I don't know why this movie got bad reviews because I loved it!!! It gave me all i am looking for in scary movies: jump scares, suspense, good acting, and having you on the edge of your seat. This is one of the better scary movies that I have seen in a while. I highly recommend going to see this movie! it is worth the money!
