I never go to horror movies -- haven't seen one in over a decade -- because nearly every one of them is made by those lacking talent for an audience that lacks any understanding of what potential the horror genre is not living up to -- other than taking everyone's money. They are never scary, never frightening, never edge-of-your seat thrilling or any of the above -- OK, maybe if you're a 13 year old. I just don't comprehend what people see in so much garbage that is produced for this movie genre. There is so much potential for some great films, yet they are time after time so poorly made. A movie that truly gets into one's psyche and creeps you out -- I suppose that's my definition of a horror movie, but show me one that's been made that does that for anyone else than the teenage-mentality masses. That's because they don't know how to make them. I thought this one might be the exception -- because the trailer looked good. ...and that's where my compliments end --- The marketing was truly the most talented thing behind this movie, hence it's opening-weekend revenue. But don't let that fool you. It was boring, boring, boring. Nothing is thoroughly explained. The characters are unconvincing as it is overly acted in every scene, therefore horribly acted. Slow. boring. Not scary. A real snoozer.
