I recently revisited this film to determine how it is that something staring Hayden Christensen and John Leguizamo managed to get such an absurdly high rating from yours truly. The answer?

now the only problem I had with this film was that it was very slow and boring at times.but one thing is for sure,it is one of the most powerful horror film i have ever seen.the actors in this are amazing,Hayden Christensen, thandie newton, john Leguizamo are spectacular in this film.the suspence keeps rising.now this is a small horror film,nothing too big happens.the special effects aren't mind blowing,but they sure are creepy.this film was good,a film that reminds us it's very rare to watch a horror film that actually deals with characters and their emotions.I recommend this film,truly memorizing.I haven't seen too many movies by Brad Anderson,but after watching this film,I now know this filmmaker is sure the real deal. I recommend this horror/drama.
