  • 1 star "I am so confused since i have watched the second one, where kate is in it. Come on people if you get shot you would end up dead, at the end of the first one where kate gets shot by the police and she dies. So how on earth would she be alive, for the 2nd and 3rd one. Yes its freaky."
  • 3 stars "First of all, I liked this movie. Is not ground-breaking, is not the best horror film ever, but it is a very decent take on demonic possession and faux-documentary movies. The acting was very good (specially Katie.. Micah I felt was a little overdone) and the first half of it promised a lot horror-wise, IMHO. What I mean by this post's subject is that this movie did exactly what the people who dislikes TBWP criticized that movie for NOT doing. The main criticism I've heard of TBWP is that there's almost nothing in the whole movie to be scared of. Sticks and stones are moved around overnight, the film crew gets lost in the woods, they freak out over noises from the woods... other than the fin"
