Don't hate it for what it isn't
14 July 2006 | by moon_petal_geishaSee all my reviews

For those of you looking for a movie full of blood and gore, this isn't a movie for you...but for those of you looking for a movie that will have you paranoid, and disturbed to the core...this is your movie.

I loved this movie for the fact that it's roots based in true events could be enough to shake anyone...the fact that it could be realistic is scary enough. It doesn't rely on gore or blood to be scary, and then when it does decide to use blood...you're not expecting it, and you've already been shaken by other things to not be shaken by blood.

It's a great movie...

So don't hate it for what it's not...but like it for what it is...creepy
