Realllllllly Goooood

By MrMysterio122
Everyone talks about how bad this movie is but it is really the exact opposite. Especially if you enjoyed Cloverfield....

I personally love movies like this( exp: Quarantine, Cloverfield) I felt that this movie was one of the most scariest films I've seen in forever. The actors made you care about them..eventually....

Good story, not scary until the end
