That's what happens when you do a mercy invite.
I believed you wanted to invite everyone.
Dad, I can't invite everyone in my art class except for one person without social networking evidence inflicting more pain on that person than was intended. And I'm not a monster.

Not scary or suspenseful at all. McAvoy's character was ridiculous and not the least bit frightening. In fact, I laughed through most of his performance. I almost walked out halfway through, but i wanted to give the movie a chance to get better- it didn't; in fact, it went further downhill. To call this movie horror or smart or clever, even in the slightest, is a flat-out insult to the viewer. This movie sucks- waste of time and money. The critic's seem to have viewed a completely different version and praise this movie up and down. Not only not scary, but just not a very we written and developed story line. So much potential was lost here. I'm baffled by the rave reviews of the critics, are they smoking something that might have made this an entirely different movie?
