    This could have been great, but it has all the usual horror movie stuff - bad characters, bad script, bad acting (outside of Maria Bello) and a horrible ending.

    My audience was all on-board, talking to the screen and cheering, but right when it ended, pretty much everyone was like "Is that it?" Never seen an audience turn so fast on a movie.

    I've heard good things and bad things. Did it seem like it was over pretty quick? 80 minutes is a fairly short run-time.

    Nuke the site from orbit. The only way to be sure Prestigious

    80-90 is ideal for most horror movies. It ended when it needed to.

    This was really run of the mill though. I think I liked The Boy more as far as derivative broad release horror this year. But I did enjoy it.

    I really liked this, I didn't think it had bad characters at all, better than most horror films these days actually. I also really enjoyed the way the ended it. Sort of bittersweet.

    watched this last night. truly disliked it, pretty much for the reasons mentioned here. PLUS way too much of it felt like a hard pg-13 scooby doo mystery which was really jarring for me. i knew the ending was gonna be bad from everything i heard but i didn’t know it’d also be almost diametrically opposed to everything preceding it. this should’ve been much more

    Don't make me an optimist, you will ruin my life. Prestigious

    The boyfriend saves this movie for me. When has a horror movie boyfriend been this great AND lives to see the end?
