This movie was ludicrous. But scary. I got free tickets through a horror Meetup group here in Philly. I left work, and took an incredibly enjoyable 3 mile walk through downtown to the movie theater. It started the way so many do, with young adults having stupid conversations and laughing and poking fun at each other. I get it, I’m not the demographic for that part of the movie. Basically, some folks get together and decide to rob an old blind man who supposedly had a lot of money stashed away. When they break in, the film really gets scary. The fuckin’ anxiety almost killed me. But, as if to say, “Hey Joe! Don’t be too freaked out.” the movie quickly devolves into one of the stupidest pieces of garbage I’ve ever seen. I don’t want to spoil anything for you, so I won’t. There’s a good, anxiety-producing movie hidden in this one, but they had to ruin it. 

P.S. Just couldn’t help yourself with the goofy speech about there being no god, eh? I think this movie was made for teens.
