This isn't bad but it isn't what I consider to be a horror flick. It seems more like a psychological thriller with some paranormal elements thrown into it. I have to use subtitles and it sorta got a bit confusing around the end and I had to replay it a couple times to make sure I knew what was going on. It may have had a couple of jump scares but there wasn't much going on in the "scary" department.
Once again, it isn't a bad film but it isn't anything to rave about. If you are looking for a way to pass some time it will keep you occupied. If you are looking for something to tingle your spine, you may want to look elsewhere.
