After Mia crashes the car into the pond, the car has its footwells full of water. The doors are above the water line and at such an angle that it could not flood as shown. The car's depth in the pond is also inconsistent with the area immediately around the car; Mia exits the car and into the water at a depth near her waist. See more »
If you value your precious time, watch something else...
This mixed bag borrows its few "scares" from good horror films such as The Exorcist. There is not 1 ounce of originality here. None of the main characters are intelligent or likable. Other characters remain a mystery even after the credits roll. The dialogue is so terrible that it's laughable. The story is deeply flawed with blatant inconsistencies and from start to finish, it's astonishingly directionless. So much of its content is mindlessly grotesque without purpose. All physical injuries are wildly unrealistic. Say 'hello' to failed shock value because you will accurately predict every moment -- even when things are way out in left field. The duration is short but somehow feels like forever. It's so stupid I kicked myself for having wasted time watching it. I won't comment on the acting because actors require a decent script and these folks, simply weren't given one. The only pluses are: lighting, facial make-up, some special effects, and creepy set design.
Frame of reference: I'm in my 30s. I never saw the original film so I'm not comparing them. I have seen most U.S. horror films of the past 4 decades. I pay zero attention to critical reviews and always try to give films the benefit of the doubt.
