I saw this movie in a packed theater full of coiling middle schoolers - the appropriate age and atmosphere for this movie. As this was not my first rodeo and I am an avid movie goer for the slightly spooked, this movie was a little too juvenile for me. Rather than using the now cliche "Found Footage" format - this movie does have a traditional scary movie story line. It does get one hooked very early on, but does not sustain this type of shock and awe. Maybe its just me, but this film was very bright and airy for a horror film. Perhaps that is part of the look of the film and I'm just stubborn. Finally, the story of this movie does harken back to the great exorcism/ possession films of old yet does not firmly grasp its own hold on american cinema. This film is almost a parody of itself. If you are hoping for a few good jumps out of your seat, and possibly even a few nightmares, this film will leave you unfulfilled. If you are 14 and going to a sleepover, this is a quality pick!

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.

There were several good jump out your seat scenes. The effects were subtle yet disturbing. Being it was referenced to a true story made it intriguing. Acting was good. Though my friend found it predictable, I thought after one sees a thousand scary movies, it is hard for a movie to NOT be predictable! Go see it! It is worth the fee of a movie for sure!

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 acting was ok, the story line was ok, but as you watch it you can see they could have done so much more with this movie. There were even times in the movie the screen goes black, almost every 20 mins, like that is where they would insert the commercails if it was on TV, where in my opinion that is where this movie should have been placed and I feel it was heading there and Lionsgate got a hold of it and said oh what the heck maybe we can make a buck off this one. Now it does have it moments you know the old shock, surprise scares, so if you really want to see it, and your theather has matinee showings for less money, go then.
