This movie is a rare type of horror that is scary because:
-its made to look real life
-it uses a person's fear of the unexplained and the supernatural
-its so simple it looks more real because there are really only 4 actors seen and there is only one set(the house)
-it scares you then gives you a break then scares you even more
-it includes the oh-so common cliff-hanger ending (like in Quarantine )
Overall not as scary after as other horror movies.
"Yeah, it didn't bother me till this morning when I was getting out of bed. I felt lazy and wished someone would drag me out then I remembered the movie and was like HELL NO!"
"I think it doesn't bother me out of the theater cuz my house looks nothing like that."
The plot is a young couple move in together and are experiencing paranormal phenomenon from something like a demon, etc. I don't want to give anymore away.
Now this movie has gotten mixed reviews so I will be Switzerland here and tell you the truth. First off, the hype was so over the top it was unrealistic. But just because of the hype, doesn't mean it's not an amazing movie.
This movie messes with your mind. Not with your eyes (blood, etc.) There is very little blood in the movie and that is the point. What this movie does it takes everything you can't explain (ex. Finding your keys in the middle of the floor the next morning unexplainably) and tells you that a demon/ghost/etc. did it. Yes, I know it sounds unreasonable, but after watching the movie you'll know exactly what I mean.
People with a very low, shallow, realistic imagination will find this movie to be a piece of crap. Because they don't think twice about anything.
People with a very large, crazy, and colorful imagination will put a lot of thought into this and the movie will be so terrifying in so many unexplainable ways.
The movie builds off anticipation, suspense, and terror. Not cheap blood and bad actors.
Person 2: What the hell? The movie was a bunch of bull. It was cheap and had no blood. I'm definitely not buying the DVD.
Person 1: Well you don't have an imagination do you? Can't wait till you get possessed. ;)
a total waste of money.
-"ya man, my girl didn't even get scared, it was so lame"
"ya i know, i'm so glad i didn't go to theaters to watch that over hyped lame movie"
-"haha yah. they couldn't even pronounce Micah right!"
The movie itself follows a young couple, Kate and Micah, as they film themselves attempting to deal with a demonic haunting.
Person 2- "Yea, it sucked. Nothing jumped out at me and there wasn't enough violence. It was way too boring."
Person 1- "What the hell are you talking about? That was the scariest movie ever! Movie's don't need to be gory like Saw to scare the crap out of you!"
