Newt's movie review

It's an interesting premise with occasional and appropriate hidden cam camera work, but the dialogue was horrendous and the acting wasn't much better. Casting Dread Pirate Brad was a poor choice, and Glover could (and perhaps should) have been replaced. I will admit, however, that there were a couple of times when I wasn't necessarily scared, but definitely uncomfortable.

Ripley's movie review

I put off watching this movie for a long time. I'd heard some things about it and I was afraid to watch. It turned out to be not as horrific as I'd feared.

I was suprised once, I laughed a couple of times (which also surprised me), some scenes were pretty gruesome, and Elwes kinda sucked. The movie had some problems but overall was worth watching.
