    I have to agree that sometimes it seems like the director was going more for style over substance and the music was at times distracting, while other times I liked it. Honestly had the concept not been so fresh I probably wouldn't have liked it as much as I did.

    My wife did say about the music that at times it was misplaced and not needed.

    Really enjoyed this flick, right up there with, "The Babadook," for best horrors of the past couple years.

    I liked the concept. I didn't like the execution. The music was, at times, obnoxious and distracting. I was left saying "wtf are you doing?!?!" More times than I'd like to admit. The movie was definitely overhyped. I'd still give it a 6/10 though.

    Yeah the music was annoying but so was just about everything else for me. There is the concept of leaving stuff open for interpretation for the viewers but this takes it to the next level. On top of it questionable acting, terrible pacing, and not caring about anyone...it is POOP IMO.

    But if the acting is bad, it takes away from the movie overall.

    I've pretty much learned to not expect much from the acting when it comes to horror

    It's still a knock on the film, I don't care who is in it. Are you saying it doesn't matter or to give the fact the acting wasn't good a pass? Plenty of other films that starred nobodies have very solid acting. Not sure why you would pinpoint that as not being an issue

    Films like The Babadook would not nearly have been as effective if the acting sucked. If a film is shooting for a slow burn, tense build up the acting better be on point. Slashers, yes acting typically wouldn't be a knock but an indie horror flick like this that is relying on atmosphere, characters and mood...sorry thats a warranted knock.

    Open casting call! You can suck but don't worry you are a bunch of nobodies and will be given a pass because it won't detract from the film!

    Why should the acting be believable when a sexually transmitted shape shifter walks after you? At least Babadook was somewhat realistic with a poltergeist. This had naked men on top of houses.

    I really wanted to like this movie, but was so bored with it. I honestly liked the music, it built tension well, but then they did nothing with it. Some creepy parts throughout the movie, but I feel like they could have done so much more with this.

    On the bright side waiting for it is probably more exciting than the movie itself.

    A Korean webrip just came out recently, but it has hardcoded Korean subs. Quality is good though.

    Same here...started off good and then went downhill fast. Loved the first kill....wanted more of that....got boring slow paced ghosts chasing a bunch of boring teenagers from room to room.
