Go if your 11 years old and want the bagubee's scared out of you, for adults, it was kinda on the PG-13 side. I agree with the person who said it was too dark to see anything; there should have been more showing of the actuall killings. You want to scare me then make Bagool a little more scary!! The writer should be coated in honey and thrown in with 20 hungry baby bears to be licked-tickled into a coma!! (Don't ask what that means-I don't know) Other than that, I was a little scared but not to the point where I couldn't turn out the light. I slept very soundly!!

Most "horror" movies make me yawn. I felt actual chills with this one! And nice twist ending! Very spooky and creepy. I highly recommend this one. DON'T take the kids or they'll have nightmares for WEEKS!

This movie was like a candy necklace - only with demons in place of the candy. It was like demonic bits of gruesome and interesting strung together with cheap weakness. The family films that the protagonist views near the beginning of the film are absolutely awful and very hard to watch, but also very interesting. The home videos start you on the path of wondering how this movie is going to turn out. Next in line are some throw away scenes. Then back to the heart of the story, the investigation, the beginnings of a pattern. Next - predictable fluff. That's basically the formula for the movie. It seems to have started out very high-brow and well intentioned, and the core story is truly fascinating. But somewhere along the process of actually producing the movie, the creators seem to have lost their endurance. The result is a film that is not scary at all, but is instead a strange collage of both promise and awkwardness. You may just want to skip this one.

It was really nice to see Ethan Hawke again, even if this role portrays him as a family man who doesn't appear to give a rats ***about the safety of his family. Go see it!
