and boring.

By the first 20 minutes, we all wanted to turn it off, given that nothing happened.

It is basically a slow and rather dull ghost story that doesn't make much sense.

Was it a slow start.

Unexpected little gem .

It is definitely not a horror movie, so don't waste your time if your looking for that.

Then the film is very boring, and nothing happens with Mira Sorvino and Shane West stalking her in silence for maybe twenty minutes in a lonely cabin.

Yawn, yawn, triple yawn.

Stupid, boring and extremely lame.

It was boring I was seriously falling asleep and I'm not even old.

Thanks..I enjoyed it

Boring waste of time...

However if you have a pulse and the smallest hint of a personality then I would stay away from this snoozer.

It's so d**n boring.

I understand why some people gave this movie a low rating due to their expectations, however, if you can leave them behind, I think you will find that it is an enjoyable and captivating 90 minutes of film.

Breath-takingly beautiful, the stunning scenery is a character itself.

"The Presence" was somewhat of an uneventful and uninspiring movie.

One of the most boring, dull horror films ever .

oh the worst ghost story i have ever seen, probably the worst movie.

The setting is confined enough to be intense.

It is elegant, creepy, visually stunning and, by the end, very moving.

Waste of time.

The movie starts out very slow.

If you love watching grass grow, watching paint dry then you will LOVE this movie!

The photography is good, and a bit intriguing.

I recommend the watch, Do not expect a horror show, although it does have some spooky moments, Let the mood sink in, The pacing is slow and deliberate.

if you enjoy being bored out of your mind.

However,the director tried to hard to make it artsy fartsy.

It was a really boring Hitchcock rip off.

However, after some other while, things became a bit suspenseful.

Unexpected, and very moving.

stupid behaviour from the protagonist, just when things are starting to have to start making sense, we are thrown into the most trite, basic narrative trick, the most North-American over-used audience manipulation, the simplest way out, the easiest way to trap people's attention and trick them into 'empathy' for the lead character, yes, you guessed it...

But it was just a huge f*****g waste of time and potential.

There were so many empty holes at several intervals of the movie.

Quite frankly this is one of the most boring and irritating horror films of all time and ranks as one of the worst all-time.

The pace of the movie is very slow, it feels like this two hour flick could have been done in 45 minutes.

The first 5 minutes was a waste of time.

If that's what you want, you'll probably think this movie is too slow or boring.

I also think Mira Sorvino is an excellent actress and her acting skills made the movie very enjoyable to watch.

Slow, progressing through slow and ending slow.

I enjoyed it so much that I had to learn more about it, which led me to this site.

At one point he screams, and since this is so uneventful, I am now wondering if that is a spoiler.

Which are dull.

In fear of being bored out of your mind by it, irritated at it staring at anything and everything.

Recommended if you are bored.

Excellent film and intriguing concept.

I give this a 5/10, decent story, mysterious characters, but excruciatingly slow pace.

This movie has no story to it what so ever which is the biggest disappointment.

Over all don't waste your time renting this please don't ever buy it either.

The movie was slow in getting to the point, and it was slowly building up suspense, but it never really climaxed.

if you enjoy being bored out of your mind .

One of the worst movies i have ever seen .
