Good movie, very intense. Those old people walking down the hall is so creepy.

Why not just be thankful to the ppl that run this fine site for having movies to view that you would probably not see otherwise, instead of whining like it’s imdb. The music was fine and added to the overall atmosphere of the film, miss ungrateful. Take a mydol because you obviously need one. There’s another thought;)

Worst thing about this movie is the horrible so-called “music” and wailing in the background. Very distracting and tedious.
