Review taken from here


This movie is… well, quite tense and shocking though for me it is not as tense as I expected before. Many missing parts and points of the story here and there.

I have turned down the lights in my room yet I didn’t feel any goosebumps when watching this movie. Die was even look a bit bored and sleepy last night.

Well, it was just for our bedside story after all… So the nightmare wouldn’t come to us after that, LOL

Not a highly recommended movie but not a bad movie too. It’s up to you guys…
