Thought it would be disappointed...but I was way wrong.
12 June 2010 | by See all my reviews

I'm going to start off this review by saying that you should see this movie right away because it will not disappoint you and that this movie is just not given a lot of credit. Really people? A 5.6? This movie deserves at least a 7 hands down and I will tell you why.

First of the acting was surprising good and since I've only ever watched Jackson Rathbone in the two Twilight, where he doesn't talk barely at all, I was really excited to see this guy as a man actor in a movie with more than 2 lines of dialogue. Let me tell you folks he did not fail to amaze me with his acting ability. I thought at the beginning I would only be seeing an alone, depressing/laughable, personality, but throughout the movie he grew into a serious role that helped carry the movie further.

I do not think there is a point of summarizing this movie because that's what the internet, and of the back of the movie case, is for but basically it's a school project based on people's worst fears and the **** hits the fan in the middle of the film, which is good. It's quite original and the cinematography and editing is definitely something I admire, especially since I go to school for this stuff.

All I can say is that you should see this film once you get the chance and you most will definitely appreciate it because it is most likely one of the best horror movies I have ever watched.
