I just saw it and gave it 2/10.Here's my review:



THIS MOVIE WILL BE "HAUNTING" ME FOREVER(*/*****): 


Spoilers ahead! 


Surprisingly this movie was scarier than the typical teen horror film.Too bad is still a typical teen horror film. 

Thanks to Alfred Hitchcock we learn that build-up is the key for suspense.True,but it's not the key for horror.Looking back I realize the small amount of things that actually happened.They did good on hiding the secret in order to have a good twist but the point is that interesting things happen before.Even if you're a fan of high school soap operas a lot of the scenes get repetitive. 

In some scenes Haley Bennett does an O.K. work,but in others she doesn't.Considering movies tend to be filmed outside the chronological order I'm guessing either she didn't try at first because she thought the movie was going to be bad and then she liked,or,she had a good feeling at first and then she got tired of working in it. 

The events of the ending made me over-think a lot on whether or not it was a good ending.But it's really about how they handle the ending more than the events.It's not a happy ending yet it ends on a high note with everyone so cheerful,that music,etc.So it's a bad ending. 


Grades:F in the U.S. and 2,0 in Chile.

Believe, man, you're not missing anything. The only things I remember about it was almost every prop in the movie was blue in color and some stupid theory that if you cut off a limb of an indentical twin, her sister's limb will fall off too. I swear, it must have been a TV movie for the Sci-Fi Channel and ended up getting upgraded to a theater release when LiLo agreed to sign on for it.

Many movies that come out in threaters should have come out on DVD instead. I'm pretty sure "I Know Who Killed Me" was supposed to be a made-for-cable TV movie for the Sci-Fi Channel, but got decent studio backing and Lohan as its star, and thus somehow ended up in theatres instead...

This movie was about as "scary" as High School Musical. It should have premeired on MTV -- and never have gone to theatres!

Total sh*t...

The same reason why teenagers have made "Saw" such a successful series: to see people being killed in bloody, "creative", and over-the-top ways.

I doubt "The Haunting of ..." will get any nods. "The Happening" "Saw V" "Mirrors" and "The Eye" are all way more serious contenders for any Worst Horror Movie category...

Is that a chance you have to take or is that a complete risk?  The Happening probably would beat this in Worst Excuse for a Horror Movie (if you bring that back).

It doesn't look scary in the least bit, but I still kind of want to see it. Most scary movies aren't really scary anyway...

I meant the past 8 years. I thought people didn't like it becaue they expected action and explosions...when it's a good court room drama that is NOT 12 Angry Men.

Obviously, Rotten Tomatoes isn't giving an inch.  I might ask some of the critics if they posted their complaints AFTER they saw it.  Based on where it landed on the box office charts and the C grade its getting on Box Office Mojo, I might rank this as either Probable or Questionable (ironically, One Missed Call, The Eye, Shutter, The Happening, and Quarantine all fell in the latter category).

Just a little food for thought: If you want people on this Forum to stop insulting you, it's best not to use phrases like "people like you."
