It had me in horror. It had me laughing out loud. It had me crying softly. It had me in awe. I felt for the main charaters. And that's what I want from a movie. I loved it. I can't compare it to any other movie. And that's good in my opinion. Go watch and enjoy.

And if you think this is the worst movie of the year, or your life, you should probably watch more movies.
