Goofs

There is no way the body of her mother would have been that gory. After 25 years it would be dry as a bone. Especially with all those rats. See more »

Surprise
5 May 2016 | by See all my reviews

Not only that this was actually pretty decent, but also looking at the rating of this. While other (mediocre) efforts in the horror genre have been lauded and got better reviews, this actually builds suspense and can sustain it, but does not to hit the spot with at least a lot of people here on IMDb.

The story is out there, even if it is based on something real and something horrible (cult, mass murder/suicide), which might be something some people may have an issue with. If you can detach this from reality (it's a movie after all and if any of it were true it would be more than frightening of course), you can have fun and be scared - all the things this movie promises as entertainment
