Now this was a pretty out of the Hollywood mold for teenage horror movies. It had everything you expect from a standard teenage horror movie.
The story isn't bad, don't get me wrong. In fact, the story was actually quite nice, and had a good constant flow to it, so you weren't left bored. Now, what makes the movie halt a bit is the predictability of every single scene. Everything here is by the Hollywood-book. You see everything coming a mile before it actually happens.
The acting in the movie was fairly good, though I am not really familiar with any of the cast. But still, they did a good job.
As for the apparitions, or whatever they are supposed to be, well they look pretty cool and move in a nice way as well. Now what ticked me off was whatever that was going on with their mouths. Every time I saw one of these apparitions I was laughing because of the mouth. So it was a bit hard to take them seriously.
Now, with the supernatural touch of the movie, this is a little bit more interesting than your average standard teenager horror movie. But it is dangerously close to being just another mediocre type.
Watch it if you like teenage horror movies, but don't expect to be scared out of your seat. There are some nice deaths and effects, but that is about the size of the fireworks.
