Jessica Alba declared that while she had been wanting to do a horror thriller for a long time, she did not want to do a slasher where each character dies in a more outrageous and bloody way, whereas she found this film to be elegant and very well-written, and her character, Sydney, to be elaborate and very interesting, thus enabling her to stretch her acting abilities.

Oh, shit. Thanks. I didn't see that.
Neither did I.

People say seeing is believing, but for me, that's not entirely true. I lost my sight when I was five years old. Those memories of what I have seen have faded so much that I doubt I'd even recognize myself anymore. Now I see using my other senses. I can smell the rain before it drops, but I can't watch it fall. I can feel the sun on my face, but I can't see it rise...

OK, so it isn't the best horror movie ever made, but it also isn't the worst.
The premise is reasonable (for a horror) and despite a few plot holes the film manages to build the suspense. Alba's acting is not exactly award winning, but she does enough to avoid you disbelieving the character.
The biggest gripe I have is that the ending is a bit of an anticlimax. After the build up (I think there should have been a bit more with the apartment residents) it just fizzled out.
Overall I wouldn't rush out to buy the DVD, but if there isn't anything else on, you could do worse.
