Am I being heretical when I disagree with the bad reviews?
8 March 2014 | by See all my reviews

Okay, so maybe the acting leaves something to be desired, and everything taking place more-or-less in a small house tells you there may have been slight budgetary issues, but for the most part this is a perfectly acceptable slab of horror, as long as you don't go in expecting the next Exorcist.

The way the story unfolds through flashbacks and present day events until the final twist is reasonably successful, and stopped me from looking at the time even ONCE... which is more than can be said for others of it's ilk of late. It gets pretty gruesome too later on... as long as you're patient enough to hang on that long (pun intended).

It's FAR from perfect, but it'll do. For now... 5/10
