What a scary & crazy film! Love!
3 April 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

WOW I really liked this movie! I really liked the chill factor! i was scared of the Adam character, yet found myself actually rooting for him a little. The gore and death and blood was BIG and I felt it was done right. So often I see movies that try to do this and EPICALLY fail. Not in this movie,. I was nervous at points, chilled at points, and even the next day I was thinking about it. Thats why I had to write a review. Whenever a movie stays with you I think that its a good thing right? So if you like movies that have some good scare and characters that you hate to love this should be it. Ill see this again with some wine and good friends and have a big scare fest! The actors were good and I think the writer new how to do this right!
