The spoilers are really only in one paragraph, labeled **spoilers**
This isn't a bad movie, although I wouldn't say it's a great one either. It has plenty of suspense and a few moments that are truly terrifying. The atmosphere throughout the whole movie was, in my opinion, particularly well done, they really nailed it! I felt like the characters were well portrayed, however, I think they were not developed as well as they should have been, and although you got a few glimpses into their history and backstory, there really wasn't much to fill in the blanks, and let you really get to know them, or understand them. I think just a little more effort in that area could have made some huge improvements. As it is, it's sort of just like, here's a bunch of people going through some bad stuff, you don't know much about them, and therefore don't have a reason to care about them really, you don't really understand how they got to this point in their lives, and although it doesn't matter much to the story line, it leaves you feeling unconnected to them. So, when something bad happens to them, or they get killed, it's just like, wow that's awful, but oh well.
But, as far as the story goes, it is a pretty good one. Actually, it started off great, i thought. The first few scenes had me really into it, but it kind of lost it's momentum at some point. It had plenty of twists and turns, and kept on surprising me all the way through, which is always a good thing. The downside of that, though, is that it was sort of too much packed into one movie. Just when you think you'd figured out what was going on, everything changed. When you think you knew what to expect, the opposite happened. And usually that's good, but in this movie, it happened so much it started to feel...almost ridiculous, I guess. Just like there was too much going on.
**Spoiler** For example, when first sister (can't remember her name, sorry) died in the house of 'heart failure', she'd only been there once before that, so it's not like she had a big connection to the house or something. Then, the sister came there, and very soon she was attacked. Again, not a big connection to the house, or even the girl that had killed herself there. But then there's the suicidal girls parents, who I lived in the house too, and I assumed they probably remained there at least for a short while after her death, nothing happened to them, right? Or what about the girl who grew up there, and her parents, who were the ones selling it, although she'd encountered the girl in the red raincoat, she hadn't ever been attacked, nor had her family. So why is it only the sisters are who attacked? The things that happened to them were scary enough to make the movie good, but it sort of left me confused because I don't understand why they were targeted.**
I feel like it would have been better if they'd split it into 2 movies, and expanded on the scenes with more detail and more explanation.
Then there's the ending...Maybe it's just me, but I thought it sucked. To me, though, that doesn't necessarily ruin the movie, and I don't regret watching it. It was a good watch with a disappointing ending, but again, I think splitting it up would have really made it much better, cause one of my problems with how it ended was that I just felt it was too rushed, and not enough explanations were given.
Overall, I'd recommend it to any horror fans, especially lovers of possession or devil themed films, just don't go into it expecting too much or you will most likely be disappointed. It's not going to blow your mind, or have you re-watching it again in a day or two, but it won't have you bored to death, wanting to turn to something else half-way through it.
