I just don't understand why people gave this movie a bad rating?
Kris
I hate movies that try to pretend they are about one thing when really they are about something else.
Kat
I actually liked the ending though it was rather predictable and did NOT twist.

I was really disapointed in this movie . it kept me interested through the whole movie and even made me jump a couple of times . the problem was that the whole movie was about one girl getting scared all the time so after a few good scares it started to get to repetitive . just a bunch of pop up's . but even that would've probably gave this movie a 4 star rating . the reason why I gave it a 2 star was because even though the movie kept me interested it had a horrible ending . this is one of those movies where the ending ruined the whole movie . it would probably be worth no more than $5 to buy just because it was good up til the end .

Its just a shame that these days all movies that are advertised as being ghost movies are really movies about demons. I believe in ghosts not demons. I hate movies that try to pretend they are about one thing when really they are about something else. Like the Paranormal Activity movies. Those trailers and plot outlines make you think its about a ghost, but nope, the work of a demon.Therefore I generally don't give a flying frick about these sorts of films. This really came across as a movie for 12 year olds with nothing really going on. Nothing special and no replay value for me. I won't be watching it again. BUT, its not the worst movie I've ever seen. For a more in-depth review visit my horror movie/book review blog in my profile.

...this is one of the most horrible films ever. There's no "plot" whatsoever, the "characters" were all scrambling around for nothing and a wasted watching time. Better go out and run around your house!

Totally not recommended at all.

This movie was very good, but comparing it to Carrie is ludicrous. For those of you who remember those late night made-for-tv thriller movies in the 70's, should really enjoy this.

This movie is Hauntingly BAD in every aspects.
The plot is ridiculous because it's so unreasonable. The acting and the dialogue are bland. There's no horror nor suspense. It's more like a drama than a horror. However, it also fails terribly as a drama. I don't feel a thing for the main character.

The director tried to make the film look different with a twisted and surprising ending. That only makes it worse.

This isn't a bad little film, but it is rather lazy and quickly forgotten after viewing. It's good for a rental and one viewing, but not much more than that.

I realized as I was writing up this review that this film was all too much like so many other "pact with the devil" kind of films like Rosemary's Baby and Ghost Rider wherein someone wants out of the deal before it's, drum roll, "too late" (gasp!). In this film couples that are about to lose their child during labor are visited by a mysterious entity that offers life to the child, but takes ownership of it at the age of 18. This ownership consists of giving them a life of luxury, power, and popularity, but one loses his or her soul in the process. That's about it in the nutshell for this film.

Molly Hartley, very nicely and believably played by Haley Bennett, is the damsel in distress in this film. Earlier her mother attempted to kill her, but failed and was sentenced to an insane asylum. She is cared for by her loving and concerned dad, Medium's Jake Weber, who continues to see his deranged wife while comforting his daughter by changing schools and moving in an effort to have a fresh start. Yup, it's that cliché-ridden. Jake is always believable in any role I've seen him in and one wishes he had more to work with in this film, but he is solid support and even makes the clichéd moments seem more real.

There is a reason this movie has nearly 40 reviewers and an average of 2.0 stars. I should have listened to what I read here. The movie is about a girl named Molly who has moved to a new town and school after her mother tried to kill her, because of something she did at her daughters birth. Molly befriends a religious nutcase and the attention of one of the guys in her class. She tries to adjust to her new school but she keeps freaking out from what looks like a trauma case from her past with her mother. By the end of the movie, not everything has been as it seems and the ending of the film is much like the opening 10 minutes... pointless and boring.

What you find out along the way becomes interesting, but the pay off doesn't build up any interest, and just leaves you thinking, "WTF was that?"... things make sense, and come together, but in a way that is disappointing and a waste of time. Had it had a better pay off, the film might have been ok, but what it is, is what it is, and it's a shame it's such a terrible ending.

There was some potential here and I kept hoping for a good, coherent resolution. The cast did their best. Unfortunately, the screenwriters did not. I am not even sure what happened here or why anyone would care.
