As far as ANY movie goes I give this 3 stars, but would definitely award 4 if we were limiting comparisons only to other horror films. Don't let the "Wes Craven Presents" tagline fool you--this isn't just another ragtag group of twenty-somethings being picked off by supernatural forces, but rather includes decent character studies and a premise, atmosphere, and effects that are genuinely creepy. The movie also instills a general sense of hopelessness for the characters, not just in terms of their inevitably grim fates but also for their bleak existences, that actually me had me caring about and rooting for them.

THEY are real! Spend one night in my basement with a candle, and you'll agree...

Jokes aside I loved it. There were a few parts I wish had been done a different way, but I haven't enjoyed a movie that much since I saw Quarantine at 3AM in a pitch black basement with surround sound. I am one of the harshest critics when it comes to video entertainment, so when I enjoy a film well enough to buy the DVD, then you were likely talking on your cell or posting on Facebook with this playing in the background for rating it so poorly. I had a friend watch part of it and he got spooked enough to ask me to turn it off.

Lighten up guys, go for a few weeks with no sleep on a diet of caffeine and nicotine, and you'll understand this movie much better!

Okay, it wasn't the greatest movie I've ever seen, but putting aside the critics trashing of this decent movie, I decided to give it a shot. Who are these so called "critics" anyway? Must be nice to have a job where you can be COMPLETELY WRONG at least 50% of the time and STILL HAVE A JOB!? Anyway, this freaky little flick was free on my Prime membership, so I could always just kill it. Well, I gotta say, it was quite a bit better than I thought! It is a lot better than some of the really cheesy stuff coming out on the SCFI channel lately I can tell you that! This movie had quality sound and dubbing, the cinema shooting was as good as anything going on cable tight now. The creatures were well done --leaving a lot to the imagination, but showing the twisty, gray, horrors well enough to give you a small case of the shivers. The lead actress had this anorexic-Mia Farrow type thing going on. I couldn't stop staring at her...well..her bones. The Woman didn't have a curve on her body. Anyway, the plot was quite good; childhood boogeyman terrorize small children. The children were thought to be suffering from intense night terrors. After some time, the children grow up, and their nightmares seem to have gone away...until one by one they discover that they are MARKED; mysterious sores begin to appear...like an omen of things to come. Soon the terrors come back to finish what they started! Actually this movie was waaaay better than I thought it would be. I think you guys should give it a look-see. It's one of the better Prime horror genre flicks.

Apparently the target audience was people who had experienced "night terrors" as children; whether or not adults experience this psychological impediment isn't made clear. As someone who never had such experiences it was difficult for me to latch onto the terror aspect the filmmakers were trying to convey.
Most of the movie seemed as cold and clinical as the Masters degree oral defense she was preparing for.
The plot implies that all children who experienced night terrors will someday end up in bogey land but they completely failed to establish the supernatural foundation for this premise or for the entire movie for that matter.

so the movie seems to float effortlessly towards the inevitable disappearance of our heroine and her childhood friends; end of story.

the gimmick of pulling a 4" wooden peg out of her skull made no sense whatsoever, especially since none of her other friends had made mention of being marked in such a manner except for the red blotches.

I can't even say that this film is episodic; but if it is, it is only marginally so.
No explanation is offered about the entities that abduct their victims, what becomes of them, etc.

The film not only lacks a foundation; half the house is missing as well. Where are we going with all this?
That in itself is a tragic ending; when the audience is left emotionally untouched and completely detached.

I would give it 4.5 stars. I cant imagine why so many people did not think it was at lease fairly good. I think people just love to hate everything. They like to think they are smarter than everybody elso so they complain about everything. this was scarier than the ring 1 and 2, and way scarior than "I see dead people." The fact these things could turn out the lights any time in order to get you was chilling!

Predictable but still creepy and scary. The movie's plot line is familiar but the unanswered questions of who or what "they" are saves the movie, leaving the viewer unsettle. The critique of the psuedo science of psychology is contrasted well with the ambiguity of what is real evil and what is insanity. The failure of reason, along with archetypal fears of closed spaces, dark tunnels, trains, water, and slimy unseen creatures who scitter about like large primeval insects are all classically frightening.
