Very creepy - of excellent making
25 June 2008 | by sara_joan_1See all my reviews

Although being a thriller, this movie really lets you get to know the characters, and they are believable and they feel real. They aren't just each assigned one characteristic, but they are real people, each with their own faults. You are drawn into the lives of the characters, and the discovery of who they are, and their actions feel real - this could really be.

This film will hold you in your seat until it's done, and you will sit on edge until it's over. It is so creepy scary, yet you cannot stop watching it, because you just have to find out what really happened. Who was her father, really?

It felt real, and it had quality acting, and it scared the wits out of me. I like movies, but I generally don't get affected by them. But this one... I swore I will NEVER live by a little lake like this one, after I saw this movie.
