3.0 out of 5 stars Really??? August 23, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
My husband & I watched the trailer, and this movie looked like it had potential. Well, the trailer showed the best parts(like most do). The movie was very slow with too many fillers, not enough ghostly substance.
The storyline itself was good,but it was filmed poorly with bed sheets as ghosts & chairs piled on a table(like in Poltergeist). I mean.....really??!!! Give us a break! Not much imagination with the filming of this story. There were a couple of jumpy scenes,but nothing to brag about. Not worth the $3.99 rental here on Amazon. Huge disappointment!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars No No No August 16, 2013
By Mary
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Friday night - excited to settle in for a good horror movie - start the movie annnnnnddd.....no - not a good movie. I knew we were in trouble from the moment it started. You can immediately get a sense of where a director is on a scale from how he chooses to employ or not employ music. Whatever chance the movie had of building suspense of tension is repeatedly ruined by the drone of what sounds like a bad temp score that someone has decided to make more impactful by turning the volume up and down. I have seen great movies shot digital for no money. So, it doesn't mean much when someone points out how it was made for no money. This movie looks as if there was no money and then it had not the talent or innovation to compensate for lack of money. BLAIR WITCH anyone?? Great movie - no money. It's nice that friends have stopped by to write nice things and be supportive, but I suggest to those looking for a good indie horror film to keep on looking...

1.0 out of 5 stars Please save yourself time and watch anything else. October 6, 2013
By Eric
Format:Amazon Instant Video
If this were on free streaming I would say maybe watch a few minutes and see for yourself, but since it is on paid streaming I felt that I should really explain how bad this movie really is. To begin I would like to make it clear that I am a fan of low budget films, and I think that certain allowances for them could be made, so my review will reflect this. This film is one of the worst films I have ever watched. It's one of those few films that fall into the black hole of being bad, but not so bad that it's enjoyable, which makes it a huge chore to watch. At best this movie is bland; at worst it's downright annoying. The background music is nothing but a constant repetition of the same few notes, only changing when the scene was supposed to be tense, therefore removing all tension from the scene, then culminating with a loud jump scare, which usually can't even startle. The script is more a long string of outdated horror movie tropes tied together with wooden dialogue. As other reviews have stated, they used the chair stacking from Poltergeist, the ghost under a sheet from the Scooby Doo cartoon, and the random sounds from every uncreative horror film.

The movie seems to have been filmed with good cameras and microphones, but the lighting is excessively dark, seriously dark to the point where we stopped the movie and tried another movie to make sure our TV wasn't damaged.

This movie is very boring, and its running time has been extended with an inordinately large amount of lingering shots, and multiple views of a single scene, this movie could easily drop thirty or forty five minutes with proper editing.

I will conclude my review with the final and most grievous problem, the cast. I honestly didn't know who was the most bored, me and my wife or the cast of the film.

1.0 out of 5 stars someone please give me my money back August 23, 2013

That was horrible. I couldn't make it past the first thirty minutes. I'm pretty sure this movie was made by high school students. That's the nicest thing I can say.

1.0 out of 5 stars If your scared of a bed sheet then maybe August 23, 2013
By suicyco
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I kept waiting for the movie to be scary but it never happened. There were so many opportunities for this movie to make you jump or give you shivers up your spine but every single time they managed to screw that up. Recommended only if bed sheets scare you.

1.0 out of 5 stars The worst. August 29, 2013
By Chris
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Might be the worst movie ever made. Not kidding. At the very least its the worst movie I've seen all year, and believe me, my wife and I have watched a lot of what ended up being bad horror movies. This one, I'd actually like the time I spent watching it back. On top of the movie being just awful, it looks cheap.

I want my $$$ back! Slow pace, stale acting, very bad directing, back angle of photography, bad set design. Lame and totally boring I could not even watch the whole thing.

4.0 out of 5 stars I ended up enjoying this movie November 20, 2013
By LAB
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
This is one of the movies that has its strengths and weaknesses. I so agree with the reviewer who said there will be polarized responses to it. So . . . I agree that parts of the movie were unnecessary and actually disrupted the flow. Yes, the the use of music to startle may have also been overdone -- but, it did make jump!. And I also thought the sheet ghosts totally lacked subtlety and were cheesy . . . you saw too much of it and it detracted from the scare-factor. HOWEVER, I found parts of the movie REALLY scary, moments that were almost unbearably tense ( I was watching at night) in a very subtle way! Maybe some of the reviews lowered my expectations, but I actually enjoyed this movie. No special effects, no gore, just old fashioned spooky what-will-happen-next stuff. Spooked me!
