Goofs

When Kelly is unpacking and placing clothes in the drawer, the dresser moves about 8 inches while she is looking away. When she notices it and looks down at the carpet, she sees the indentation where the dresser leg was, but an elongated slight indentation is missing which the leg should have created by being dragged on the carpet.

Decent idea... poorly executed.
19 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's a decent angle at a haunting, but the writing is just not good.

It has a good cast. It has good looking shots and special FX. The trailer drew me in. They did good with that. There are some really clever things in the movie, like how the furniture was rearranged in the room, literally. That was cool. But the story is just poorly written.

It isn't the worst movie out there, as some others have said. That's silly. I have seen much worse! But I give it a generous 5 stars for production value. The movie is not worth watching other than for educational purposes, in my humble opinion. Sorry guys. But a different script with the same production team could have much better results.
