Nicely made thriller that starts off a little slow as the story develops and then gets a bit more creepy about halfway through. Good acting and plot is a little bit cliche but all in all delivered as promised. One of the better horror movies that I have seen in a while.

I am a very picky movie viewer and I have to say that this one was great. It even made me jump (a little) a couple of times and I can't say that for many movies. Horror is my genre of choice, and this is a must see.
There is really no blood and gore, but the concept is good and the fact that it is based on a true story always makes it better.
I would not recommend this movie for young kids.

It's a haunted house. You know, an experience you step into so that you can be shocked and frightened if you kind of go along with it. And the scary stuff is done well in this movie. Special effects are generally good and the film generally looks good. There is an enormous amount of energy spent trying to develop the divorce subplot with way too many awkward scenes of ex's interacting as children are picked up and dropped off, and of the ex being passive aggressive around the new love interest, and it's just not done well. Meanwhile the background story of the monster is treated reluctantly and abruptly. Lots of Exorcist II overtones. There wasn't really anything interesting about the characters. At the heart of every good movie is a good story...The story here is thin and unsatisfying; little more than a vehicle used to deliver a few well done scary scenes.

Kid friendly horror movie about a young girl possessed by the spirit from a Dibuk Box (a Hebrew thing that contains a malevolent entity) goes light on the violence and a bit too heavy on the silly special effects. There are a few genuinely creepy scenes but this probably works best with an audience that is very easily scared. Parents who take their children to PG-13 horror flicks should have no problems with this one.

The entire movie was excellent! This is the scariest movie about Exorcisms I have ever scene, even better than the Exorcist. I don't scare easily but this movie really did scare me, especially since it is based on a true story. Go see it, you won't be disappointed!!
