  • 3 stars "A good movie it was just a little watered down no real scares just creepy"
  • 5 stars "very well done...classic horror flick"
  • 3 stars "I have seen worst. This is a good horror movie. You dim the lights and you turn up the volume of your surround system. It is worth watching. Some parts that make you jump. Would give 3.5 on 5"
