    I have seen many horror films, but most of them do not freak me out, especially not the old ones but....these last 10 min freaked the crap out of me! I love this movie and I love how it builds it suspense! Watch it asap! 7 years 2 months ago

    I feel like there are a lot of characters and sequences that don't contribute anything significant to the main plot and just make the pace of the film slower. Guess that's just the style of the makers and that's only an opinion.

    But even if you are able to guess the plot, the sequence in the dark hall/bath is one of the more amazing and tenebrous moments i have seen so far in any movie.
