I swear if this "movie" gets a sequel...
...because the ending kinda left an opening for a sequel. As if, Todd Lincoln.
Overdone inclusion of found footage aside, the moment the dialogue began, I thought we'd bought tickets for "Saved By The Bell: The Haunted Halloween". The writing was just awful. Without giving too much away, there's some inexplicable secret-keeping that's not very well justified in the end. Also, there were many moments where the director seemed to be building up to a scare only to completely let the viewer down, kind of like cinematic blue you-know-whats.
As for the acting, well, let's just say Ashley Greene better be glad she's hot (although she really shines during scenes where she's pissed off). I don't know what was up with Sebastian Stan's haircut - I know it's not important to the plot, but it will get to you. If you decide to see it, you'll understand.
I'm very sorry Tom Felton got caught up in this movie. Also, one spoiler - there is a total "Ju-On" rip in this movie. Eyes were rolled.
