Okay so... I... 
I feel like I have been mind fucked... yet... don't? Ya'll... I have no words right now but I am going to try? So let me get this out of the way, the movie was bad ass. Holy crap I want everyone to see this movie and honestly with every horror movie lover, this needs to be on their list to watch ASAP! 

In lies the issue I have as we all know was coming due to the missing stars. Lol Y'all know I hate open endings. I hate cliffhangers. Whoever came up with them should be throttled. I can't stand stories, shows, movies, etc that have no closure... Probably why I hate life so much, eh? Everyday is a cliffhanger. LOL!! Okay bad joke, sorry. But anyway. 

I really loved this movie from the start. It doesn't start off with overloaded information and it also doesn't start off with complete action. yet in a weird way, it does. Which I like, I mean... What's to hate about that? But I have to admit I was so freaking confused at first (and we know how I feel about that. It pisses me off to no ends) but thankfully it explains everything fairly quickly. Which I have no problems with, in fact, I get why it took so long to lay that down - which is a good thing. Hats off to them. 

What is so crazy though is the ghost. Usually things are pretty black and white you're either team good or team "evil" - in which I admit I have been team evil a few times because when you learn why a ghost is the way they are, you tend to sympathize. But this one... oof. It was TRICKY!! I'm still on the fence about it. Because she was plain dirty for that but in the same breath, he should be stomped for what he did. That was beyond cruel and messed up. So I really can't blame her there... Yet I mean she tried to pull some mess too. SEE!! It's a mess! oiwejfowihfow ANYWAY! This had been on my watch list for about two months now? I feel bad for not watching it sooner! Lol 

The storyline was amazing but I feel like it could have used a little buffering out? Or maybe I blinked and missed some information that is needed to make sense of some things? That is another thing about this movie, you can't take your eyes off the screen because everything in this movie is important to the storyline and if you look away - you WILL miss something or some information that you need to know. Lol I feel like if I watch this movie again I will see some parts that I didn't see the first time. Lol Which I'm not mad at. I like movies that are like that... gives me a reason to watch them again... and again.... and again. Hahah

There is so much more I want to say about this movie but sadly I can't because I already feel like I have given to much away. Also, I do know this is a remake of a movie (I can't remember the original name though) I feel like I should hunt it down and watch and see if it has more information in it. I'll have to keep this one updated if I do. ^_^
