After a young, middle class couple moves into a suburban 'starter' tract house, they become increasingly disturbed by a presence that may or may not be somehow demonic but is certainly most active in the middle of the night. Especially when they sleep. Or try to. Written by
Towards the beginning of the movie, when Micah and Katie are talking with the psychologist, there is a hard cut from the doctor to Katie as the doctor is talking, but the dialogue does not skip. Since the movie is supposed to be entirely self-filmed footage, this would imply that either there were two cameras filming at once, or that they did a second "take" with the doctor, both of which are unlikely.

Is that what I think it is?
Depends on what you think it is.
I think it's a big-ass camera! Whatever happened to one of those little hand held cameras?

Simply put: This movie was hyped up to be unbelievably scary. Every other Facebook status I saw was pretty much talking about the movie. The IMDb rating was an 8.6 (VERY high for IMDb's standards) when I checked just before heading to the theater. Then I made the mistake of actually watching the movie.
My verdict: Bad enough to make the crowd laugh at the "scary" parts, and boo at the end. Practically everyone yelled "REFUND!" while we walked out of the theater. No impact scary moments. No so-scary-I'm- about-to-wet-my-pants moments. Nothing. I pretty much consider this a complete waste of $9.50. Me and my friends (and the whole auditorium in which I watched, actually) seem to be the only people who don't like this movie. I really don't see what was so good about it, though. Complete waste of my time. Definitely 2009's "Epic Movie." I'm being generous with 3/10 stars.
