Goofs

In the morgue when Marlo calls Courtney's cellphone, it shouldn't be able to ring because of a dead battery. Later in the movie, in the cafe we see that Courtney never stopped, and dropped her phone when she was haunted by her dead sister in her own house. So the phone never stopped filming until the battery died. See more »

Pointless remake of a pointless movie
2 October 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The 1990 original ( original ? haha) was not as good as we think we remember.At a time when the cinema needs to refresh itself and stop reworking old stale ideas..we get this ...utterly pointless.

Bad screen writing here..less than 1 dimensional at best and the acting is pretty atrocious in all honesty. The first 5 minutes made me wonder if it was gonna be any good...I could not foresee a movie go downhill so quickly...the ending was so daft I could hear people saying "What"? in the theatre.

Not even the addition of Keifer Sutherland could make this any less silly. Direction was lame and lazy...I get the idea they thought they were going to cash in..I also get the idea they are very much mistaken.

Rush release on DVD I would think to cash in before people catch on how bad it is. The story is really , really silly with enough plot holes to take the wind out the story.

Bad at best gave it a 3 because I'm in a good mood.
