Lets remember, Based on a True "Story" is entirely different than Documentary. I've only watched the trailer and no. I seen "The Fourth Kind" did some research and lost complete interest in "Based on a true story" horror.
It was ok. Drags a LOT - need to get through some "character development" to start getting some chills.
Don't wast your time and money
Surprisingly good for what it was.
I loved this, it brought me back to a time when movies actually scared you and made you question what was happening.
sucked,thought it would of been alot scarier than it was!
well done, keep you jumping on our seat
great movie! worth watching.
a great scare with an actual story instead of unlimited gore and includes some actual good acting to boot. worth the watch for horror movie fans!
pretty good movie!
save your money, and don't waste your time watching this movie.
Terrible, don't waste your money
i was expecting so much more and was quite disappointed. the first half of the movie was so slow. it was only the last 10 or 15 minutes that really caught my attention. the trailer makes it look so amazing, and it was such a letdown.
i can't believe i've been going for years withuot knowing that.
best horror movie i have seen in a long time, although not very scary, still suspenseful and exciting, very entertaining, a repeat watch.
entertaining throughout the film.
not the best horror movie i've seen, but not the worst. didn't really got into the jew thing, i would have added some more horror elements to the movie...
great plot, great characters and definite scares. see it now!!!!~
a let-down remake of an overdone theme. some scary scenes in the darkened morgue, but otherwise déjà vu! hope the young gal doesn't get twisted like some of her predecessors!
freaky effects that gave me a good laugh!
really good! i'm not a fan of supernatural movies but it was well done and suspenseful.
scary as hell
not scary...but a good movie.
this movie had the potential for some great scare factor, but it really ended up being the same recycled story. i found myself waiting for something to happen....and at the end i was still waiting. the acting wasn't so hot either
i loved it, i like watching horror movies, there are the best
could have been better...or scarier, but it wasn't too bad.
this movie rocks !!!
this was supposed to be a horror based on a true story? ha!.........even the addams family was spookier.....
i like it. it had a decent plot.
as usual jeffery dean morgan did not dissappont, the movie was fast paced and suspensful.
really good movie. i did some research on the story too. spooky. that's why i don't buy antiques!
i liked it! if people don't want to go to a horror movie...don't go. what do people really expect? i like that it had a real plot and story line rather than it just being a friday the 13th type storyline.
excellent movie !!!
some people will love this movie, some will hate it - i thought it was an okay horror story.
it was an alright movie. there was some pretty scary parts and alot of suspense. i dont know if it would be worth seeing in the theaters or just waiting till it hits dvd. however, if you are looking for a good thriller, this one is alright.
one of the year's funniest movies, the robert downy jr clone is hilarious and the little girl has the funniest line of the movie at the end
it was just 'ok'; expected much more. a few moments were sufficient to let us know it was 'serious evil' (scary). but premise is actually absurd. any box that [[ineffectively]] contains a 'demon' would've had a longer history of casualties than the story implies. contradictions of effective powers, yet at the same time impotent to cause more damage more consistently why not as a weapon of mass destruction? not. it takes only a few to 'contain it...almost'? duh. storyline is underdeveloped, as children involved are always 'scary-worry-creepy' and does work. a low-gory horror. 'insidious' was much better.
i enjoy horror movies and given the nature sometimes they end up being silly but that is ok too. the reason this movie got 2 stars is more than half of it was very boring no matter how hard i tried to be engulfed by the story i was just bored 'till the end when the horror starts which wasn't bad but i have seen scarier in more average horror films. don't waste your money.
love horror movies!
fair premise, but similar to too many others.
not expecting much on this one & it delivered about as much as i thought, a couple shocks but not worth the time.
just enough scarey parts to fill a two-minute trailer....
another horror movie about a little girl possessed by a demon? yeah lets not do this anymore
It was ok a little on the off side
wow this is why they release movies in late august .....just to squeeze a couple of dollars out of your wallet... and at two bucks that what this movie is worth. poor acting, not scarey,
