A well done thriller
13 February 2012 | by See all my reviews

After reading some of the reviews on IMDb I almost didn't give this one a chance. I'm glad however that I took the time to watch this film. I'm not saying I stumbled upon an instant classic, or one of my new favorite movies. I wasn't blown away by it or anything, but I felt as though it was an entertaining horror/thriller. It did become slightly predictable, but not enough to turn me off from it. For having such a small cast of characters and lack of different settings. It kept me waiting for the next "day".

If your a fan of "The Amityville Horror" or "The Shining" I recommend this as one worth watching.
