(at around 38 mins) When Ed Burns character finds the video disk of the kids room he holds it up and it clearly has 'KID'S ROOM' written on the disk. When he puts it in the computer the writing is gone. See more »
[to Leann about Shelley Baum's funeral]
Hey. How was it?
It was a funeral. It sucked.
From now on, I only go to parties where no one gets cremated.
How are Shelley's parents?
Considering their 24-year-old daughter drowned in the backyard pond. They're great.
I knew Shelley. We interned at Saint Luke's together. I mean, she was not crazy.
I know but the way she was talking at the end was pretty...
Yeah, that doesn't mean she killed herself.

Awful, absolutely awful. Had free tickets, but still, I knew better. Of course, all the clichés you'd expect, dumb young adults, scares that come from someone jumping into the screen and sound effects that go "boom" simultaneously, and the build up to when suddenly the main character is the one in eminent danger. Quick cuts of "scary" images. Did I mention the "creepy" music that lets you know when the mood should be tense? Now, add to that a premise that goes beyond the bad premises of other movies in the genre. Possessed cell phones? Or is it possessed ghosts that have to travel through cell lines? Oh man. The crowd I saw it with erupted with laughter numerous times at crucial plot points.
Download that game "snake" for your cellphone, it's a lot scarier.
