A pretty good film depending on your taste in movies. The main storyline is good and there are places that are suspenseful and keep you on the edge of your seat. There are also a few slightly creepy places that you find yourself shivering about for a few hours after the film. However, there are a few quite strange parts that the film could really do without. You have to really be prepared to get past them if you don't like them as the story does get back to normal again after them.
Person 2: Yeah, it was a bit weird though.
Person 1: Really? I enjoyed it.
