This one took it's sweet time to get going. Once the girl and her really hot mom move into the house across the street from where a double homicide took place, we go through the lengthy process of getting to know the neighbors and the whole story of the house. Never saw the Hunger Games, probably won't because I'm no longer 17 but this girl Jennifer Lawrence is a decent actress and makes the movie okay. If your looking for special effects or anything supernatural look for something else. The kid who lives next door plays his part fairly well but just lacks the chops to make the story believable in any way. It was kind of entertaining to see annoying neighbors, the "cool" kids in high school and how they operate these days, and does this girl really sing or is that someone else? So if your in your teens or 20's you will probably like this one but if your above 30 you may find yourself going to get some popcorn and be unable to find your way back into the theatre.

If you love psychological thrillers with a twist, you will love this tale that starts out like every other scary movie with a new girl moving to the block. It soon changes...and you will find yourself questioning peoples' motives...great ending!! I jumped multiple times (great cinematography) and I screamed twice...be prepared to have your hairs stand on end!

I went for because I thought it was a thriller and turned out to be a cheesy suspenseful movie. Not really anything scary, could've waited to see it. Critics were right this time.

Why is it to much to ask to get your money's worth to go and see a decent horror movie? I walked away not really understanding the ending. The only scenes that scared you at all was when the girl from basement jumping out with loud music. I was surprised Elizabeth Shue appearred in this movie. The Ryan character acter was not convincing at all, not great acting. And if I had to see another close up with Elissa character, I was going to scream. Come on, use some creativity. Dont waste your money. I wish another movie like "what lies beneath" would be released! Now that was good, scary, edge of your seat suspenseful, and what a real horror movie is what its all about.
