If I can prevent at least one person from ever seeing this, than it was worth sitting through I suppose. I haven't seen every movie in 2012 but, out of all the ones I have seen, this certainly ranks as one of the worst.
First and foremost, I thought this was supposed to be a horror movie? I've seen high school video projects scarier than this. Heck, I've seen scarier in my toilet. There is nothing, nothing! That's scary about this movie. The only thing that was scary was how something like this was green-lit, especially since it was sitting on the shelf for two years. It should have moved from the shelf to the garbage. It would have saved everyone money and time, including my time. Eighty-three minutes of my life wasted on this horrible film and that's Eighty-Three minutes with credits so this movie is really only 71 minutes. Felt like 171 minutes. So yeah, like I said, this movie wasn't scary at all, and that's only one of its many problems.
The next is the acting. The only word to describe the acting is pathetic, the only good performance is by a dog. Yes, a dog gave a better performance than the whole cast. Sadly, he's only in the movie for a few scenes because he dies. After that, this movie goes from just barely watchable to UN-watchable. Everyone else is so wooden, I almost confused them for wooden planks. The only person I recognized in the cast was Tom Felton. Why he agreed to this is beyond me but, I've lost most of my respect for him.
Like almost every horror movie, the characters do stupid things that a normal person wouldn't do. Sure they can't move because wherever they move the ghost thing follows them but, I'm pretty sure carrying a bat isn't going to do you any good. The characters are cardboard and one- dimensional. The only good character worth giving a dam is yet again, the dog but like I said, he dies.
Lastly, the ending is just as bad as The Devil Inside. The movie just ends because I guess the filmmakers couldn't think of anything else. Who can blame them with this kind of material that's the same as every other paranormal movie. The ending is actually in the trailer, it's the last scene. So really just watch the trailer, you can pretty much predict everything that happens in the movie since it shows all the character's being "taken" by the ghost anyways and the ending to the movie itself, rather than subjecting yourself to this movie.
Overall, don't even waste your time. This movie would barely pass as a Direct-To-DVD movie, it should have just gone directly in the trash bin where it belongs. The acting is wooden, the story is derivative of almost every other paranormal movie, the dialogue is laughable, and the characters are clichéd, dumb, and unlikable. The one bright spot is the dog, I hope he has a very successful life ahead of him, as for the rest of the cast, no. Just no.
