Not Bad!!
1 August 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I am a thriller/horror movie freak!!! And this movie was no way near as bad as some people are making out. For months I avoided this movie in blockbuster due to the low ratings but i finally decided to get it and judge for myself.

I found it quiet interesting and there were a few scenes that made me jump! The acting was okay. Definitely not the worse I've seen from watching many many horror movies. The movie was filmed nicely. The music was just right. The movie definitely kept me interested the whole time and trying to work out exactly what was going on.

Yes there were a few corny scenes but nothing to turn me off the movie completely. I give this movie a 7 out of 10
