I just saw this movie, and it
FREAKED
ME
THE
HECK
OUT.
It was so intensely amazing, and such a low-budget movie, it was purely brilliant.
Anybody else see it?

Ya, I saw it. It was a pretty creepy movie...not as scary as I was hoping for, but still creeped me out when I went home to go to bed.

I'm planning on seeing this as soon as I have some time. Seems to be the new "Blair Witch" - tiny budget movie with a lot of buzz and a big marketing push resulting in a low-budget phenomenon.

I really like that they're placing it into the incredibly mundane and ordinary setting of a bedroom at night. This is where many of my personal freakouts have occurred. Night terrors, waking up from intense nightmares, being absolutely horrified as a child at night in bed. It's easy to lie in bed at night with insomnia and imagine the ghosts in the darkest corners of the room. It's ripe for the right kind of movie treatment.

So I'm interested in that take on it, but I don't want to go in expecting too much - but I am very curious to see this movie!

I saw it Hallowe'en night. I thought it had a lot of promise from seeing the commercials. What an utter piece of garbage! Not one jump-scare, over-rated effects, the whole thing reeked in my opinion. Heck, even the woman I was with was bored to tears with it. The only people screaming or freaked out were 16 year olds, or so it seemed. Nothing in it for adults, unless your a real chicken when it comes to scary movies. I thought The Blair Witch was a pile of dung, and this was only slightly better.

I'd love to know where they spent the 15,000 on the budget.... maybe the rental of the editing suite? *sigh*

But that's just my opinion. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. Heck, at least wait until it leaves theatres and rent it.

Just watching the trailer for this film gave me a couple of sleepless nights. :O

I have it, but I need my USB back from me papi so I can move the movie to my PS3 (not gonna watch it on this tiny computer screen).

Skimming through it looked like nothing was happening at all, just people hanging around in some house. So either I don't have the real movie, or it's one scary a*s house!

I'll screenshot the opening and you guys can tell me if it's the same thing as the theater, it probably is.

1 minute. .

I am sure you have the real thing...that is pretty much what the movie is. I was not impressed.

Hmm, alright.

Well here it is anyway. Click to see the full sized image. It's being all weird if it's not shown in full size.

And then it shows some lady driving in to her drive way, and then getting in to her crummy house. And it all looks like it was taken by a home made video camera.

This movie was absolutely garbo in my opinion. It's sooo completely boring.

If anyone wants a laugh, watch the alternative (actual) ending. It doesn't get any worse.

Oh, I seemed to have forgotten to mention that my dad was out working that night so my mom came in my room with a pillow and blanket, and just slept on my floor. lawl.

And yes, a lot of people are saying the movie was bad. It's about 50/50 good/bad, or so it seems.

If you want to be scared, call the police, and tell them someone is digging up graves and 'violating' the occupants. Then go and do that yourself. You'll be scared ****less. Trust me.

You cant say ****less for the record.

But got scared... at the fact that I wasted my money.

what's the alternative ending?

The girl is sitting on the side of the bed, rocking back and forth, all night. It becomes morning, she's still rocking back and forth.

Friend or someone comes to her home, finds the dead body in the house, and leaves. Becomes night time again, she's still rocking back and forth.

Cops knock, come inside, check all the rooms, finally find the girl. Ask her who she is. Girl replies with "Is that you (forgot the dudes name)? And starts walking towards the cops.

Cops tell her to stay back because they will shoot, she doesn't stay back, they shoot, she dies.


The End.

You can probably find the alternative ending somewhere if you type it in Google.

My friend told me how much crazier the other version is.

Well I thought I should make my own Verdict due to the 50/50 ratings.

Verdict
It's a waste of money to own on DVD, so best rent it. Even though it seems to be a dull version of The Exorcism of Emily Rose, it does make you a bit scared to record your house at night. So may I suggest the sequel to this scary motion picture, The Notebook?

15000 dollar budget, and 250000000 grossed. can that much money be WRONG?

forgive me, of course it can. BUT i heard about this movie just as it was being leaked into film festivals and such, so i decided it'd be a good idea to see it since it got great reception.

my friend called me at like, 11 pm the day before i saw it, and he was kind of freaking out/breathing heavily and told me not to see it. i laughed at him a bit, lol :P

i heard that when speilberg saw it, he wanted to remake it, but it was too late and far too popular for his rich hiney to rip off. so he ended up doing the very last special effect [SPOILERS] at the end when the girl kind of screamed into the camera.

bumpity bump. I went to see this movie today after hearing alot of negative stuff about it.

and I...absolutely loved it. it had this 'real' feeling since it was filmed using a normal camera. (unlike cloverfield where I had to throw up because they were constantly running)
here's my verdict.(SPOILERS)
It was a very good movie (albeit it feeling kinda short) with some really scary moments and some were very jumpy.

here's a...list of my scary moments

- loud demon scream
- ouija board being written on
- the diana part was also suprisingly creepy
- demon dragging katie away
- katie going downstairs yelling like a monster, making Micah wake up and when he goes down she stabs him
- Micah being thrown at the camera (very jumpy!)
- and last but not least...when katie jumps at the camera



at the end, I really enjoyed this movie (even though the acting sucked at times) and I'm giving it a 8/10 :)
