It was one of my favourite scary movies of the 21st Century
It was okay to watch once.
When i was in grade 9 all my friends raved about this movie being super terrifying so watching it as a 19 year old experienced in horror classics it is Extremely underwhelming. Most of the scares happen formulaically consisting of X Scare background feature ( easily predicted by the focusing of the camera placing the protagonist slightly off center) + Y scary noise which supposedly then = Scary Scene. still enjoyed watching before bed, would personally rate it like a 3.7 outta 5.
great movie! one of the few good ones out these days
