The BEST WORST movie ever.

Story was predictable, main characters behavour was illogical at times, as were the supporting casts behavours and actions.

It was really slow and I had to force myself to watch it all the way.

To Lin Shaye's credit though, her character portrayal is compelling.

The human psyche is fascinating and watching her mentality be explained slowly was enjoyable.

15 more minutes could have wrapped everything up nicely and maybe even gave us time for another plot reveal, because as others have said it is rather predictable.

This is the absolute worst movie I have seen since a very long time.

Worth the watch.

Terrible acting, predictable and rubbish .

The pacing is a bit slow and the other actors besides the main character are just average.

Definitely worth watching.

But being predictable does not make it bad.

Waste of time.

The story itself is somewhat predictable and you can see certain events coming a while off-I'm not sure if i quite bought the 'Sarah' character, whose motivations for snooping around seemed somewhat flimsyOverall a solid drama / thriller that has shades of Fatal attraction & single white female.

Painfully slow, predictable, and just illogical that people would live like that, there is no use writing too much more, its just rubbish.

Probably the worst movie i have seen in the last 12 months.

A huge waste of my time.

I really enjoyed it.

It was edge of the seat thrilling, funny and horrible, with such a surprise ending.

Great acting, fun story and suspenseful great Friday night in movie!!

You may know Lin Shaye from the Insidious films, but here, she's gripping the spotlight all for herself.

The pace is too slow and mundane to ever rise above the melodrama.

This movie seems really boring, but it kept me on the edge of my seat.

Yet I wouldn't say I want my 80 minutes of my life back, I enjoyed it.
