It didn't disappoint me. Very happy with the stylish lighting/acting/dialogue. Tight plot with almost no boring scenes. I usually don't like to see these kinds of films; however, when the movie is based on real life events and/or real life people, I tend to make exceptions. Based on a true story of two sisters but Although this story is based on real events it is still difficult to accept. Entertaining but there are flaws which subtract from the reality of this subject.Not all that scary but it does trip you out at times.Started slow, but ended up being a good suspense horror film.The directing is well done, with many nice shots. One of the better psychological thrillers out there. Wouldn't really classify it as horror though parts were pretty scary.This movie is not something I'd recommend children to see. It has some obviously disturbing images as the special effects are rather convincing. The final moments of the film seem to indicate that the producers are hoping for a sequence.
