Getting ready to go see the late performance of this tonight at the theater. I'm coming back to an empty house. I'll have to sleep with my baseball bat. I'm hoping its good. Reviews look promising.

Ok, I was super freaked out. But take into account that I get scared easily at anything that pops out. I really liked it. It wasnt cheesey like a lot of scary movies. (Even though it has dead people with their eyelids cut off) And when I thought it was about to end, it kept going. It wasnt slow at all. Now, it wasnt the greatest movie ever, but I definately think it is worth going to see. I had lots of fun watching it. A few good laughs too.

Its loosely based on a true story so I'd like to find out about the original story.

OH and I slept fine. It was one of those movies that has enough of a resolved ending and something that could only happen in one place, that I was fine once it was over. Well for the most part. I didnt dare look in my rear view mirror incase there was someone/thing in the back seat.

Nice!! I'm still thinking I'll wait to video but it really looks good! I like freaky movies, but then I just get so freaked out, I'll wake hubby up to go to the bathroom.

There was one my friend watched a few weeks ago and she said DO NOT watch that movie. I'll have to ask her; but I think they were girls or kids or something about a lake house.

The Strangers? About a couple at a vacation home that are targeted by a group of kids? My Mom watched it and old me not to watch it either - too scary and I'm too easily paranoid!

Just reading the synopsis scared the crap out of me - I hate horror films, give me a romantic comedy any day! I'm glad you had fun though Laurie!

My Mom LOVES scary movies - she always wants to watch them - and even she said it was too scary. I won't even watch the trailer - I'm a big chicken :p

They called it "ectoplasm". All I could think of was ghost busters when they said that.

I can't wait to see it! A year or two ago I saw the episode of A Haunting on the Discovery Channel recounting this family's story and wondered if they would make amovie about.

Ok. Let me know. I rented it. I'm dying to see this (ok maybe I shouldnt use that expression) but I dunno if I should watch it by myself! Maybe I'll wait and have a friend come over first.
