Rotten: Squabbling among the skin-deep characters doesn't induce much sympathy, though thesps do their best.

This was better than i expected. Decent ride. Some gorey parts on the unrated version may be a bit too much for some.

i actually really liked this movie. it was really scary and violent and had a good story. I actually cared about the characters and wanted them to live which isn't the case for most horror movies. there are several scenes that are really intense and disturbing. this is how you make a horror movie. B+
