Dearest readers, a film like this has not come along since The Exorcist. After listening to all the hype, and following this film you could say I knew a lot about this little film. Nothing could prepare me for the climatic, scary ass situations that the cast and crew put on celluloid. Yes, my friends, it really is a scary movie.
I won't tell you what it's about because by this point you should already know that. What I want to tell you is how great this film really is.
Director Peli has succeeded in creating a masterpiece with little money and simple theme park haunted house gags. He does something that Hitchcock did so well in his prime-he creates a level of suspense so intense that the smallest sound makes your heart jump.
Now that! Is great film-making, because it is made with an educated audience in mind. He doesn't cater to the general public he gives film lovers what they want and he gives it to them hard.
On the whole, Don't watch this for gore. Don't watch this for any Hollywood crap. Don't watch this with your kids under 15. Most importantly....don't watch this...alone. But…..do watch it on any cost!
