Greg is having fun taking pictures with the cool instant camera he found in the Coffman's spooky, old house... until he realizes that the pictures are not what he shot. Instead, they portray horrible disasters involving whoever or whatever is in them. The scariest part is that the disasters start to come true! Can this camera predict the future? Or does it actually cause bad things to happen? The only one who knows the truth is Spidey, the strange, dark man who seems to be stalking Greg. Can Greg return the camera to its rightful owner before the next awful prediction comes true? Or will his fate be frozen on film forever? Written by Anonymous

Nothing like the Book
3 September 2018 | by KayDarko312713See all my reviews

There is a few moments that match the original story, but it's completely different from the book. A character is missing, multiple plot points don't occur, and the ending is completely changed. I want a remake, sadly.
