I slept!

This is the worse movie I have every seen. I wish I had the 75 minutes back I wasted watching this. SMG was better in "The Grudge" even "The Grudge 2" was better. This movie was very confusing and difficult to know what was going on until the last 30 minutes of the movie. Still lots of questions at the end. Trust me go rent "What Lies Beneath" with Harrison Ford, it is 10 times more entertaining than this.
