This is pointless.

The story is a slow bleed story on a new girl in town type tale filled with stories about a haunted forest.

If you are a thriller/haunted ghosts fan, and wont miss the intense scares/violence/blood, and perhaps enjoy a good lifetime movie on occasion, then this movie is right up your alley.

But they were fighting an uphill battle against a predictable storyline and a very mediocre chain of events throughout the entire movie.

This is a rather enjoyable enough Lifetime Channel ghost story even if it's pretty familiar and generic most of the time.

- The fact that one or both of the twins repeatedly tried to hurt/kill Jordan - but supposedly wanted to send a message – is contrived.

I think it was because the movie was predictable and because of the complete lack of scares, that the movie failed to entertain me.

Secondly, this movie was rife with story lines and characters that went nowhere.

exceedingly boring (mild spoilers) .

I enjoyed it though!

The Points I give this movie are: Music 5/25 -- Visual Effect 2/25 -- Story 1/25 and ZERO for entertaining so the total points 8/100 (VERY BAD)

It occurred to me while watching this update on watching paint dry that if movies had IQ's, this one's would be very low.

Complete waste of time.

Enjoyable if average Lifetime ghost story .

I could concede finding the ring in the jewelry box & suddenly realizing the truth, but the repetitive actions of touching fingers together were a big stretch.

Summation: Painfully slow and pointless; useful only as an exercise in how not to make a movie.

There were many minor things throughout the film that could be nitpicked on but overall I enjoyed it.
