What started as a good premise and makes you think you're in for a good ghost/hunted house with a twist, takes a wrong turn in the middle towards ridiculousness and cliché galore.

It was very well done and entertaining.

Enjoyable .

Amateur film and very predictable .

The acting director should be fired and blacklisted for how slow & blocky the acting is, it really says something when films 70 years ago have better acting.

Why this was actually the most compelling part of the movie, I don't really have an explanation for.

Despite the fact that there's sometimes a bit of too exaggerated acting and toe-curling, clumsy dialogues are being used, the film remained fascinating.

I went into this expecting a boring, generic horror movie, and was greeted by a bad horror movie, with gread comedy.

Whole story is predictable not so twist till end.
