Contributing Genres: Psychodrama, Mystery, and Thriller-Suspense.
Dialogue: The script is unoriginal and lessens the impact of the actual story.
Monster Type: Homicidal maniacs who carry grudges.
Gore Factor: A few highly explicit photos and flashes of decaying corpses provide the requisite (and gratuitous) carnage.
Scariness/Suspense: The last thirty minutes provide white-knuckle suspense. The premise of the movie is scary.
Anyone who will enjoy a mainstream thriller-mystery should rent
this on the cheapie deal night.
