I'm a mid 30-s woman that attended this movie, with much anticipation and expectation, with my boyfriend who is also in his mid-30s. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY! By the last quarter of the movie, everyone was kind of having personal conversations waiting it out because it was SO bad. Long, drawn out plot that is FILLED WITH TEENAGER STORYLINES and ACTING. The ONLY REASON people are rating this movie as GO/MUST GO is because of the twist at the VERY end of the movie. NOT worth it to me!!! I wouldn't even rent this horrible movie. I don't know what people are thinking, but this was NOT a good movie!

The movie was ok. Moves a little slow, but gets better towards 30 minutes into the climatic scenes. I thought it would be more scary, but I was wrong. Would I go see this film again or buy the dvd? Absolutely not. Also why was Elizabeth Shue in this film? I rest my case.

The previews were better than the movie. To review it without giving it away for those who want to see it, I will do my best. The story is slow, they spend almost the entire movie just setting relationships up, but there is no tension or anything to it. Just boring. The ending was predictable and I was glad it was over. My husband, who had a higher tolerance for slow and boring, thought the same thing I did. If you are looking for gore, this movie has none.

While it had an interesting premise there were just too many plot holes in this movie. The mother is supposed to have been a teenage mom who married her musician boyfriend, but still had the time and money to become a doctor. After the murders Ryan was said to have lived in the house with an Aunt for five years. The same Aunt who he had been living with for the previous six years. Apparently no one in town ever saw or spoke with this women and no one thought it strange. There are plenty more.
Acting is ok since they had very little story to work with. My guess is if Hunger Games had not been a huge success this would have gone straight to DVD.

Terrible movie, until the last 20 minutes. Wish there was a fast forward.
