Not incredible, but I've such much worse. All in all enjoyable.
Some of the ratings are too hard on this movie in my opinion. Mara was not amazing, but I genuinely enjoyed it! The plot was predicatable, but the acting and atmosphere still made it hold my attention. There were a few cheesey moments that were supposed to be scary, but it was surprisingly visually appealing and had pretty decent makeup for a low budget movie. I would rate it a 6.5, but since that's not an option I'm giving it a 7. I would consider watching it again at some point in the future.
