The inevitable detour into tedious and-then-there-were-none territory is all the more dispiriting in light of some of the intriguingly undeveloped ideas.

Aside from leading lady Lindy Booth and a directorial style that screams for a smarter screenplay, there's very little here that'll thrill the horror hounds and/or the gore gourmets.

A tedious throwaway horror film without a logical marble in its head.

It's dumb, yeah, but it's so convinced it's smart that it almost makes you believe it, too.

It attempts to be taken as a slasher film but it's not a slasher whatsoever, it's a gigantic tease.

The current state of the American horror genre is, sadly, in a current state of horror.

Nothing about the plot has any real spark, besides the gimmicky set-up.

Mergulha nas velhas perseguições de sempre, sendo ainda mais prejudicado pelos diálogos pavorosamente ruins.

Give it points for trying something different -- and then take them back for botching the job.

In this adolescent horror flick, the first-time screenwriters Jeff Wadlow and Beau Bauman prove more adept at staging mind games than creating chills for the audience.
