As I started to watch the movie, the first thing I noticed was that it was an Asylum picture and I was prepared to be turning it off after about 20 minutes or so.
BUT, I was surprised because it was actually pretty good and entertaining. It built up slowly and although it telegraphed most of the scary scenes, it allowed for some interesting bits.
The acting in the movie was reasonable. Nobody gave a performance that would be winning them awards anytime soon but nobody did such a horrible job that you were hoping they'd die shortly.
The beginning of the movie made me laugh even though you could see it coming and I was wondering if the whole movie was going to be a comedy but it certainly turned into a bona fide paranormal movie pretty quickly.
The ending was quite well done as well and the lead actress put out a pretty good job overall.
I recommend to watch it and enjoy the movie if you like movies about paranormal events. As I said, 7 out of 10, which in reality is an incredibly high score for anything from Asylum.
