    Frighteningly bad, yet I couldn't tear my eyes away...unlike the way Leighton Meester blithely tears out Aly Michalka's navel ring. Second most uncomfortable shower scene since "Psycho."

    I don't even know where to start with this movie, so all I'm going to say is that this is just so incredibly stupid. Do not watch this.

    Pretty average film. Not very scary, and just a little bit thrilling. Minka and Leighton did pretty good with their roles though. But that's the most the film had going for it.

    This is one of those guilty pleasures - it was a bad movie and a predictable plot, but I couldn't stop watching!
