I saw it in theaters and it wasn't that bad but it wasn't that good either. It's just one of those movies that is what you expect it to be. It should look nice on Blu-Ray though. That is as long as it doesn't get delayed like every other Blu-Ray titles has been lately.

This gets released in UK cinemas this Friday, so I think I'll check it out. The trailer looked pretty good and the Pang Brothers, for all their storytelling faults, certainly know how to shoot a good looking movie. I'm hopng for a couple of good scares also, based on their HK/Thai production 'The Eye,' which I'd advise anyone to check out - just try to go into it knowing as little as possible!

BTW: Do you also get announcements for SD versions of these movies? I ask because I'd be interested to know if there's an 'Unrated' cut coming to regular DVD? There usually is these days with PG-13 theatrical releases, and the movie is rated as a 15 in the UK (the equivalent of the PG-13 rating here is a 12).

I saw this in theaters and I liked it. I thought it had a few good scares to many fake scares(thoes damn crows got annoying <:-| ) though but thats only a minor complaint. I thought the ending could have been better and less spoon fed to the audience. Over all a good ghost flick that I will be picking up on Standard DVD and Blu-ray

I thought it was good..but i don't think i will pick this one up. It was only PG-13 wasn't it? That's why it wasn't scary.

Fans of this movie should be thrilled by the discs performance. As audio and video go, its easily upper echelon. The movie may be more of a rental for those that put less weight on the experience. But, its the best new horror that Sony has put out on BD this year by far."


I think Amazon had it for sale very late on the site.
