This movie is one of my favorites. Understated and creepy as hell. The ending gives me goosebumps every time. (That voice!)
Great movie reminds me of real life event man shoots gf and I saw his ghost for real very scary!
Scary and original thriller!
It's hard for me to find a movie that gives me the creeps after the movie is over. I have to say, this movie did that to me.
