What happened ? You're gonna tell me, you know what?
Please don't make me say it. Don't say it, don't think it. If I tell you about him, you and your kids... You're all dead. I'm afraid of putting this into your head.

The US theatrical release was cut in order to receive a PG-13 classification (the film was originally rated R). The filmmakers cut stronger moments of horror violence and gore from the film. This footage was later restored in the Unrated Cut. See more »
I will admit that there are some very creepy parts to this film, yet watching this film I kept getting flashbacks on better horror movies that presented bogeymen way better than this one did. I felt like I was watching a movie that decided to reanact scenes from other movies.
I'm just going to come out and say it: The acting is HORRIBLE. This movies presents us with stilted, horrendous caricatures of what I think is supposed to be acting, but overall it's some of the worst I've seen in a while. The character's dialogue is so clumsy it gets awkward after a while. This is seriously worse than what college kids fresh out of film school can do!
Another error with this film is the characters describing the plot of this movie repeatedly to us OVER AND OVER AGAIN. This movie could have been about 20 minutes long! This may just be one of the most incomplete films I think I've seen in a while.
I didn't have very high expectations for this movie when it came out, but my god is it a lot worse than I had imagined it could ever be!
