I want to say, right now, I am not a fan of anything that has to do with the supernatural world. In my mind, you just don’t mess with that stuff. Yes, I actually believe that there is another plane and that souls walk the earth if they unfinished business in this plane. Don’t judge me. We are all allowed our own beliefs and opinions.
I walked into this one scared out of my mind. I mean, black footprints mean Hell to me (remember Constantine? The devil came up with black oil on his feet to collect John).
The lesson that was taught in this film, do not play with the spirit world on your own. Yea, that means toss that Ouija board!
There are a few creepy scenes. The theater audience screamed at appropriate scenes, that includes me as well! A few surprises…but honestly, you can wait to catch it for $8.00 at UItraStar Mission Valley or if it comes on Netflix. A familiar face is Hayley Kiyoko (CSI Cyber, Wizards of Waverly Place) though she has a very brief role (you know, maybe ten minutes).
The film is too predicable, though some movie goers enjoyed it. I didn’t catch the second one. The first one was too much for me. I mean, who goes into the basement where there is no light?
