A decent start with horror
3 January 2020 | by CinderFallSee all my reviews

I don't get why people are already hating this movie. It's not the best one ever made, but I enjoyed the characters (who were likeable), I liked the direction, the acting (aside from a few enunciation issues early in the film). The scares were well done and a few of them really worked. The plot, unlike the 2004 version, was cohesive and made sense as to its progression. I say it's worth a watch and it's a good way to start 2020 for horror. That said, it's not going to be for everyone and please take the rating to heart.
