this movie was a complete and total waste of time.

What the story lacks in plot it exceeds with pretentiousness.

Sadly, the ending was confusing and unresolved and I was left feeling that was 80 minutes of my life I will never get back again.

It is a C+ thriller, which will bore you to death, and you will regret the time spent with it.

There is some lag when the story arch hits the midway point, and instead of rushing into a thrilling overload of horror and melodrama, things fall a bit flat.

The film for the most part was boring.

The dialogues are boring the acting is bad nothing that would hook you.

) watching people drive around; sit; stand; sit some more and really cheap mood enhancement technique of prolonged shots of trees and more trees.

Horrible movie, slow moving, boring, amateurish acting, silly naive plot, just pure waste of time.

Boring non-horror movie .

I will say that with a proper script, these people may have been better, but the villain is clearly a creep, a poorly done creep, and his goal is simply non-predictable and, therefore, fails to provide a satisfying conclusion.

No plot.

Complete waste of time.

Just some boring teenagers loping about a house where something sinister may or may not dwell.

unexpected quality .

Don't waste your time.

This is by far the biggest waste of cinematography to come to film that I have seen in some time.

One of the worst movies I've ever seen this year.

This had potential to be an interesting little indie flick, but it fell flat on it's face thanks to a severely disjointed storyline, some messy design choices and an ugly look overall that just gives the idea that the filmmakers really weren't trying that hard in the areas the should have been.

Really, don't waste your time.

I concur with another review here..DON"T waste your precious time.

It was engaging and has a simple and well executed story.

I trudged through this brainless movie and it was a total waste of time.

The other 3 reviews must be self-promotion, or from the crew, because without a doubt this is one of the slowest, most boring movies I have ever had the displeasure to sit through.

Its terrible characters, who are also uninteresting and annoying (with the exception of the creepy guy who didn't spend enough time on set for me to have a chance to dislike him).

Oh, and it's just plain boring.

Memorable and engaging psychological thriller .

This movie is ridiculous; it is very difficult to follow because of its slow pace and lack of storyline.

The ending should have brought the story together and gave meaning to all those boring parts.

Boring,Dull, Proper Waste of Time .

A painful waste of time .

Don't waste your time watching this movie unless you like to be confused!

Total waste of time .

Needless to say, I was a bit worried that I had wasted my money and was about to waste my time.

It was long (even though it was only 80 minutes), boring, mediocre, and just plain bad.

I really got into the connection between Eric and Sam, I was completely immersed in their love story.

Well, he like to record sounds which ended up being more wasted film time and went nowhere.

I got to see this film while it was at a film festival, and it was a really fun and suspenseful movie.

The worst movie I've seen since Bend It Like Beckham.

You will seldom witness a more plodding, disjointed, just downright dreary waste of film.

The main characters of the film are what can only be described as the dullest young people on the planet.

Literally, the film has no plot other than what I just described.
