Did You Know?


When the daughter is in the bathroom and grabs a glass (which already has water in it), there are three items on that same cabinet. Also the sink has a brown tube to the left of the faucet and the bar of soap is to the right of it. In the same bathroom minutes later when the woman from the historical society comes over, there are only two items on the cabinet and they are rearranged. The sink now has no brown tube and the bar of soap is shown to the left of the faucet. See more »

pretty good movie actually
8 October 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Asylum's reputation proceeds itself, and for good reason; but this movie is a pleasant surprise. The acting is good; the mood, music, and setting is good. The plot is a little fast, IMO, but it still presents itself as a fair psychological thriller.

I have no idea why people are trashing on this movie. Yes, the Asylum comes out with some horrible movies but this is NOT one of them. This movie has far more class than most of the other ones.

I am a fan of Paranormal Entity, so it didn't surprise me that Shane Van Dyke directed this one too. I don't know why the Asylum doesn't allow him to direct all their movies. They'd be a respectable B-lister movie company if they did.
