This is a supernatural teenage love story [No , It's not a 'Twilight' sequel] that takes place in South Carolina [But , It could be trying to attract the 'Twilight' audience] . It's based on a series of books [4 , to the best of my knowledge] about a 15 year old girl that is a witch [but they prefer the term , Caster] and on her 16th birthday , she becomes either good or evil [there is a countdown of the days on her wrist that looks like a tattoo] . Alice plays the young Caster that falls in love with Alden but is afraid that she will hurt him when she changes [she is afraid she will turn evil] . Jeremy is her protective uncle and Emma plays the mother of one of Alden's friends . If you like the 'Twilight' movies you should enjoy this one , too [I thought it was a little better than the 'Twilight' movies] . I would probably buy this on DVD .

Went and saw this movie with my husband on Valentine's Day, and was extremely disappointed. Hubby liked it, but he didn't read the books. I read all 4 books and I think that's why I didn't like it as much. The books are so much better, than the movie. I went and saw it a second time with my mom last night, and thought it wasn't that bad. Is it better than Twilight or Harry Potter? No. Would I buy the movie? Probably, since I have the books. Those of you who haven't read the books, please watch the movie, before you read them. You will be disappointed by all the scenes that should have been in the movie, but were cut out or not filmed at all.

Good movie in its own right

I did not read the books and so I do not try to compare this movie to any preconceived notions from a book. The movie worked well as a movie.

Oddly reminiscent of recent vampire movies

I liked the story line, the special effects, and acting. I didn't care for the ending. It felt like it needed more. I will buy it on DVD, just not until it is on sale. Oh, this movie is great for 13+ years old viewers. I did take my 12 year old, but thought it was a bit risky in a few scenes.

One of the worst movies I have seen in a long while. No real story line and it was amazing they were able to fill so much time with nothing. Don't waste your time.
