At the end it is revealed that Pfeifer is Alexis and Charlie's daughter. She is still in high school so she should be around 16-18 years old but Charlie died 20 years before so she would of have to been conceived before he died for her to be his daughter. So that would have her be 20 years old or older and not in high school. See more »

Made me mad how awful this film was
17 July 2015 | by See all my reviews

Haven't watched a horror film in a long time & decided to go check this one out. I almost left after 45 minutes but decided to stick out , since I paid for the ticket. Huge mistake, this movie wasn't even remotely scary at all or suspenseful. Camera work was annoying & distracting. Highly do not recommend if you're older than 15. Characters were not likable at all, so you really didn't care when on of them died. The "scary parts" were predictable and very juvenile, mainly included sudden loud noises or a person appearing out of nowhere. Very lazy script in my opinion, not much originality. I honestly don't understand how a movie like this could ever make it to the big screen, if this is the future of horror movies , then I just watched my last one.
