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!

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.

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.

This movie is really well produced and really engages you in the first half hour however the story is not really great. Very predictable and not mesmerizing.

some reviews say its bot good, but i think it was worth the money. I like the fact that this movie has good drama behind the horror part cuz a lot of exorcism movies that i have seen had terrible content
