Highly enjoyable.

I watched with with my daughter and we both enjoyed it.

It's formulaic to say the least.

Bored to freaking death!

It's worth watching .

Worth the watch.

Despite being a rehash of its predecessors this little slick is definitely worth watching .

If they have then it will be harder to be immersed in it as the similarities in the movies will deaden immersion.

It is worth watching and if you can come to it with an open mind and not try and hold it up against other similar movies you will probably like it.

Definitely worth the fast-moving hour and a half runtime.

but comes across a bit cliche in the "Youth vs Adults" mindset.

Very boring clone of "Bodysnatchers", with modern tropes added for modern idiots' viewing pleasure.

Boring clone of "Bodysnatchers" .

it's enjoyable.

The scene at the beginning - with the really lame (and unnecessary) CGI and an actress who can't act - makes you think it's a zombie flick, then nothing happens for quite some time.

The low-key (and low budget) effects mostly work well and don't get in the way of the story, and there is a sequence involving a mobile home/trailer (we're in small town America, after all) that practically makes the whole thing worth watching.

Overall it's just lackluster and kinda boring.

It's a suspenseful film with unexpected twists and the acting's good, so what's the problem with this film then?

I actually really did like the very end scene, but mainly it was a snooze fest.

Entire film really very slow!

Yes, the story has been told and retold at least three times on film before but, this one is cleverly written with enough twists to make it definitely worth watching.

Not a masterpiece by any means, but very entertaining movie.

The firehouse scene was the best scene in the movie..very emotional and intense!

Slow like hell!

Teen Flick but still enjoyable .

Well acted and shot but ultimately kinda boring.
