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.

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.

Despite what other reviewers are saying, this movie was great and I really enjoyed it. It is not one of those types of movies that will constantly and annoyingly make you jump out of your seat. It will surprise you and make you bite your nails (I'm guilty of it haha). Over all, I think it was well written and I like the ending... it's different from all the "scary" movies out there. Don't let the bad reviews discourage you from checking it out... I almost allowed the bad reviews to convince me to not watch it but decided to do so and I really liked it.

A friend and I took our 14 yr old daughters expecting a cheesy horror movie. It wasn't! This movie has humor and mystery, more of a thriller than horror. Yes, you could say some of it was expected, but other parts were a surprise which kept it interesting.
My favorite part was actually something that shouldn't have been there....a bug on Ryan's shoulder as he's talking. Look for it!
I thought it was good!
