    Has anyone else seen it yet? I saw it yesterday at my local Odeon and thought it was really good.
    Felt like a complete story as so many films I have seen recently just finish with little or no explanation to why certain events happened.

    Basically a family move into a house with a 'history' and a lot of ghostly goings on happen (as much of the plot as I will say).
    The film is jumpy and has all the loose ends tied up. These were the main things that I liked.
    Also there wern't two many places where it leaves you just thinking why don't you do this and practically wanting to scream it at the screen. Apart from why stay in the house???? (if that makes any sense lol).
    The actors all do a decent job and the older girl in it is hot!!!
    And it has a nice ending. One where you don't get left with the entire carst dead!
    I would definatly say worth a look mate.
    5/5:)

    It looks really scary, but that's fine when all the scary things are finished at the end, and it's like phew!

    But I hate it when it's not, and it's like the scary things might still be happening.

    I think it's always scarier when it's set in the UK too, cuz it's more real.

    I might watch it, but then just be scared if i'm in my flat on my own for the next 6 months.
