Best scary movie I've seen in years

This was a pretty good scary movie, very jumpy, along with a plot twist. I was super impressed with storyline throughout and really held my attention the whole time. It wasn't a typical scary movie which I was happy about because I haven't seen a decent scary movie in quite some time now.
