Rotten: It creates a good atmosphere, but no tension. The movie is just not memorable.
- Austin Kennedy, Sin Magazine, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: ...ultimately establishes itself as the most effective endeavor of its kind since 2005's Dark Water.
- David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews, Thursday, June 24, 2010
Fresh: Effectively creepsome until it bogs down somewhat in plot explication.

So from my experiences, the original versions of theses from Japan, China, or wherever are usually better. But I will give Jessica Alba props on this one. She convinced me on this one. This movie wasnt overly scary but did have several shiver moments for me. The goosebump types.

I can see why people panned this one. I don't remember the original being up to a whole heap either, though (although I rented that one so long ago I am sure it was still on video tape, so as you can imagine, don't have a strong memory of it). This was passable, for what it was. Jessica Alba is fine in it, at times more convincing than other times, but she is not working with a lot, to be fair. There are some genuinely scary bits, but a lot of it is just lame, Ending a bit flat also. I would not say it is not worth watching at all, but it's certainly not one that I would urge anyone to seek out. If you have a quiet afternoon, and you like b-grade thriller/horror, give it a go.
