This is supposed to be a horror movie, but it's so bad even a 3 year old wouldn't be scared. My five year old who is scared of big bird watched this entire movie and didn't even flinch. I took him in the movie theater and he only laughed at the nun when she tried to be cool and failed. She wasn't even a good nun. The entire movie, the only thing that kept me awake was the fact that my child was there and needed to be watched in case there was sex. If I didn't have that fear I would've been asleep. The only good thing about this boring movie was that along with entertainment, it also didn't have sex or drugs. This made me happy. It was still both a waste of time and money, so don't watch it anyways.

This title has:

Too much consumerism

I was surprised how much I liked it

I went in with low expectations, but was surprised the story kept me interested the entire movie. The actors were well cast and believable. I'll watch it again with my wife. Too scary for kids, obviously. Ignore that bozo EliteChief who rated it at 2+
