Starts out relatively suspensefully but quickly devolves into slow-paced, dull, mind-numbing tedium.  We quickly found ourselves yelling "WOULD YOU F---ING RUN!!!!" repeatedly.  Every suspenseful minute is milked into 5 or 10.  You see the "accidentally shooting the friend" scene coming for 10 minutes.  Lots of annoying "gotcha" moments. 

Too bad...it was a creepy premise and there was some genuine suspense and terror in the movie.  My wife was careful to keep doors locked when we were home for weeks after seeing it. 

Overall, not great (not even particularly good,) but certainly not Razzie material.  Too many "eh..." movies getting Razzie nods waters down the Razzie achievement, IMHO.

I will agree about that part when their friend comes over, instead of him
walking into the house and saying, "Is anybody home?", he decides to stay
quiet and walk around the house waiting to be killed.

Film had its moments but it was too slow moving. Liv Tylers voice was too quiet for most of the movie. All in all a forgettable film that slightly creeped me out. NOT RAZZIE MATERIAL.

Don't worry, I don't remember it being anywhere on the voting ballot.

After seeing One Missed Call not being on the list...I doubt many more are on there. How about 88 Minutes?

Ok. This ballot has redeemed itself...for now.
