I loved it. As a regular hroror watcher I was really impressed at how simple and not over produced it was which was so much more effective. Luckily I watched it with a big group of friends which added to the atmosphere! People trying to freak others out more and equally hiding behind pillows together. The after discussions become as much a part of the experience as the actual watching.The fact you don't get to see much adds to the suspense and jump factor. So many hrorors fail at achieving this by giving just too much away! The concept of a spirit world is feared by many as it's a total unknown but this film portrays events in such a way you really believe what you're watching.
