Just doesn't feel like a horror movie

The whole film is kind of unconvincing. It's quite far-fetched and doesn't manage to successfully scare you or make you jump. I give it 6/10 stars at most, because the film holds itself together (just about!). It's clearly aimed at teenagers, and that means that the content and the comedic aspects are just not of high quality. The films spends too much time saying "hey let's drink at parties" and not enough time saying "hang on a minute, this woman is a psycho that wants to kill us all".
