Quotes

Elissa: Dawn? What are you doing up that early?
Ryan: I sit out back and I write stuff. Like stories. You know, it's easy. I don't know, it's like - it's like at time of the day, because everyone's still asleep, all the best thoughts haven't been taken yet.

Alternate Versions

-SPOILER- The most significant addition is a 30-second scene where it's revealed that Officer Weaver was deeply involved in the events that transpired before the movie, basically implicating him for much of what happened. The PG-13 omits this twist entirely. When Ryan stabs Officer Weaver toward the end of the movie, Weaver says, "I protected you all these years", clearly implying that he was involved in the events that transpired before the movie. That statement by Officer Weaver is in the PG-13 version of the movie, so while it may not be complete, it is not omitted entirely. See more »

Not a scary film....
1 October 2012 | by Tribal-WarriorSee all my reviews

Predictable storyline once you start watching it, and not a scary film at all, apart from a few times where it tries to make you jump... only succeeded to make me jump on one occasion.

I actually thought this might be a haunted house sort of film judging by the title, as I didn't watch any trailers. But it isn't, it's just a teen slasher type, but without much slashing.

If you can get into a free screening like I did, or maybe orange Wednesday 2 for 1, then it's worth a watch, otherwise wait until it comes out for rental.
