John W. Allen,
I liked this movie, a lot. I thought it was beautifully shot, that scene at the end was great. I appreciated the lack of nudity and cheap entertainment, so many films now rely on sex, exaggerated gore and flinch scares. This movie does not. I liked the original plot, a sort of exorcism in reverse. The soundtrack was amazing, real talent there. I liked this director too. I guess this is his first film? Couldn't tell. Thdv I'm looking forward to more, this guy has talent and vision. The reason why I have it a 6 and not higher? Pacing... For a large part of the movie you have no idea what is going on,, and I think it took away from the movie. I think in this case it would have added to the suspense. The other reason is the video tapes from before that are labeled just that. Tapes from before 1997. Those were the worst part of the movie and we could have done without them.. If the script has opened up some, it would have been a 10. Not scary but entertaining.
