Doing what he believes must be done in order to save his family and livelihood, farmer John Rollins places an odd scarecrow among his crops and promptly reaps the benefits. The thing is, his luck probably won't last for long.
Karen, Sarah, and Emma Tunney are all moving to a small town in Pennsylvania where, unknown to them, in 1913, a horrid mine accident trapped dozens of children alive, underground. But there's a problem. They're still alive.
Chloë Grace Moretz
The arrival of a newborn girl causes the gradual disintegration of the Cairn family; particularly for 9-year-old Joshua (Kogan), an eccentric boy whose proper upbringing and refined tastes both take a sinister turn.
Five young people apply to live in an isolated house together for six months whilst their every move is filmed by numerous cameras. Each has their reason for wanting to be there - fame, money, adventure. The prize - $1 million. The rules - if one person leaves, everyone loses. It becomes the ultimate morality test. When Danny's beloved grandfather dies, does his greed overcome his love? When the skittish Emma finds blood on her pillow why does she still stay behind? And what dark secret does the house harbour that leaves them feeling as though they're being watched by more than just a million pairs of eyes?Written by

When the sheriff enters the basement we can see he leaves the door open. When it cuts to wide shots we can see in both wide shots that the door is closed. Then it appears open again later. See more »
[Matt pulls a gun out of the package]
I know what this means. I know... fucking cocksuckers.
[looks at the camera]
I know what this means, fuck you. Do your fucking research okay, 'cos him doing that to himself was the best thing that ever fucking happened to me. Fuck you.
[looks back at the others]
[indicating the gun]
I'll put this out of harm's way.
[goes over to Rex]
Come on, lets go upstairs.
What? They think they can fuck with me now?
His dad, right?

The production logos have a fuzzy quality to them, like we're seeing footage through a webcam. The five housemates are shown over the end credits. See more »
There are worse films out there..silly with few jumps.
OK I bought this film because of the rating and the tag line..."the greatest fright flick since the Exorcist" and the extreme violence rating...Crap..Five strangers spend 5 months 3 weeks in a house we come in on the last week and follow their generally boring demise.
Some of the camera work is mildly creepy and the acting does not suck.
It was mildly entertaining and the first half kept you in some suspense...but then it collapses,it gets to be very straight forward not exiting and very predictable with out the promised violence.
A very average film with a few jumps...if you liked Blair witch but wished it had some filming standards,them maybe you will like this.
