What an awful film. There are a few really good well known actors in this film so why was there zero amount spent on special effects or scares is beyond me.

Sam Raimi proved that you don't need massive amounts of CGI in the most frightening film I have seen for years in DRAG ME TO HELL - Simple shadow effects, elongated shadows under doors, strange noises, wind and a masterful horror touch that only Sam Raimi can perfect and yet this dire effort couldn't manage anything except that hoary old Exorcist chesnut of beds off floors and "invisible hags" (to save money on special effects after they obviously had shelled out most of the budget in paying the actors) lol

The only reason I give this more than a 1 star is that it stars one of my favourite Scottish actors in Sylvester McCoy who stole the show although not even he could make this passable.

This subject of nightmares and ghosts has been utterly done to death (pardon the unintentional pun) in horror movies and probably the best was BOOGEYMAN and DARKNESS FALLS but this effort if you can call it that literally gives zero scares and more laughs of derision than anything else.

If you need a soporific to summon sleep then perhaps they should actually have hired this movie to elicit slumber - as for this movie its a complete bummer!
