Thoughts: I know, I know…with the right editing it’s easy to make any crap movie look good. However, buzz has been building on this one saying that it creates some pretty scary moments that go above and beyond the jump-scares that are relied on so heavily in most horror films. Director Scott Derrickson helmed The Exorcism of Emily Rose which scared the bejeebus out of me when I saw it at the drive-in. That it’s also from the makers of Paranormal Activity and the quite good Insidious only adds to my interest. I watched this trailer late at night and it kinda creeped me out enough to sleep with a night light on…but a nice manly night light.
