Scary stuff indeed. It's by the numbers (we have Scream to thank for that) but it still works. The tension and suspense builds and the jumps are where they should be, but you still do. Good work form first time director Bryan Bertino. TCM influences abound, also reminded me of the Manson family murders. Hostel and Saw take note, we don't have to see everything. Which leads me to Liv. She's always looked great, but she shows her talent in this also.
