    Horror movie 727 for me.

    A pretty good effort. If you have Netflix you can watch this decent Spanish horror movie.

    I heard about this from a friend who said that a lot of people were so scared by this movie, they turned it off before it ended. You can collaborate this online... somehow this was supposed to be ultra-scary.

    It really isn't, though.

    You horror movie buffs will not get scared, but you will be entertained. I think.
    It does a pretty damn good job of building suspense. A little disorienting and confusing at times, this film still delivers the goods.
    You should probably check this one out. Definitely worth a watch.

    The Good: atmosphere is creepy
    The Bad: nothing, really. It's a solid effort throughout. Maybe the usage of a Ouija board. A tired troupe.

      From what I can remember, I liked the heavy Prince of Darkness influence in the first half and there was a good scare in the seance scene. Also there was one really great nightmare sequence. Probably a little too long as I recall it wore out its welcome for me before the ending. but otherwise I thought it was ok.
