clean but has lots of plot holes

cheesy horror movie but a good mystery/crime movie. little violence, language, sexual content, and drugs.

pretty good for horror movie fans

i liked the movie, there is no nudity but there is in messengers 2. there is some jump out parts, some disturbing images. it is dark and spooky kind of but ok for kids

Keep the Sensitive Kids Away

I personally liked the movie. It had some scares but it wasn't gory like some movies can be. I think as long as your kid isn't very sensitive they will be fine with the movie.

Predictable- not very scary...

me (i'm 13) and my 8 year old brother watched this movie together... it was pretty disappointing- not scary at all.. my little brother jumped once. and then we both cracked up.

I loved this movie!

Ok well... I'm 15 and Im a HUGE Kristen Stewart (twilighter here :P ) fan. I like horror movies but alot of the time i end up getting scared out of my wits LOL... I loved this movie, I havent seen many horror movies (maybe about 5) But this one was good. Not TOO violent, No sex (the parents just joke about it in one part) A few bad words, but i dont use bad words anyway, They do mention that Jess had a car accident because she had been drinking though, but obviously she feels bad for it. I dont like how her parents didnt want to trust her. And then when she tried to tell them about the ghosts they didnt believe her! I was like Wow... One thing i liked is FINALLY theres a happy ending to a horror movie i've seen. all the others ive seen have semi or not happy endings at all. so personally i love it! :D

Nothing new

This film is scary and builds up some good tension moments. The plot is nicely laid out and well told. You are sure going to have a scary and fun time, but this movie is nothing new. The plot is not very original and we have seen movies like this through the years (movies about haunted houses etc). The acting is nothing special, but not bad either.

good for older kids

one of my fave horror movie! i didnt kind it scarey like bloody. gorey scary but they more so usee the element of suprise! may scare younger kids. i had my 4 an 5 year old cousins watch an the 4 year old girl wasnt scared at all, she was laughing. but the 5 year old boy was scared out of his mind!

Very entertaining

VERY entertaining but the same old horror story. nothing original but i would defiantly watch it again. very good for people who like pointless movies. some parts are horrifying but still an amazing movie for me. love love love it NOT FOR YOUNGER KIDS it will horrify them
