Goofs

When Kelly connects Ben's hard drive to look what's inside, you can see that she only connects the AC cable and the files are already open on the computer. She needed to connect the USB cable to connect the hard drive to the computer and she needed to browse the hard drive to start any file. See more »

Just...what?
25 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The only redeeming part of this film was the bucket of popcorn that I ate out of boredom.

A group of college students conduct a séance to prove that spirits exist in the natural world. The project goes awry and results in one student being sucked into the wall while the others escape but are being haunted by the presence.

The tag line and trailer made the film seem promising but as the movie progressed I lost all interest in the film because the plot made ABSOLUTELY no sense. The characters and their actions are silly and the film is neither creepy nor scary. There are no decent jump scenes.

To be fair, there is one somewhat creepy scene of a dead girl crawling beside a washer, but that is it.

So, save your money.

Also, Tom Felton...oh Tom...how the mighty have fallen.
