Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are three severe jump scares throughout, the first is where two friends are video chatting with each other, the boy gets dragged away and a black figure leaps at the camera. The second is where a woman slits her throat in front of Jess and the third is perhaps the worst and most startling where Chloe is looking for Jess & it focuses on the window and the old woman pops up and demonically screams in her face.
