It seemed perfect – a new house, a new marriage, a child soon to be born. But when Sarah and Matt invite their friends to celebrate, the situation turns deadly as they enter a burned-out prison on a ghost hunt.

My Review:

Totally superficial, but I love the house; the porch, the woodwork, the yard, it’s all gorgeous. And as for the movie, loved that too.

This was a perfect trifecta for me; a cult, the supernatural, and an unborn baby. You just know bad things are going to happen. The movie begins by dropping some bread crumbs that you know will lead to horrific results later on. On woman is schizophrenic, and has seen non-existing people since she was eight. Then there’s the twin and his girlfriend that are really into hunting ghosts. Throw in a hidden dairy, some runes, and flashbacks of a dead girl that the pregnant woman keeps having, and you get a mystery to try and solve, along with all the blood and body parts later on in the film.

In many horror films I often find lots of holes, but this one only had a couple, at least for me. The biggest one was why didn’t the five friends just drive themselves to the prison, and the pregnant woman stay home? (But then we wouldn’t have the last half of the movie). And who left the file folder sitting in the prison… and was it really necessary? For me, it didn’t add anything to the movie. All in all though, I really enjoyed this one.
