    The movie itself had a pretty good story line, even though it's certainly not the first film to recreate the Villisca axe murderers. The acting was acceptable (again, Ava did an awesome job playing Ingrid), although when Denny (?) talks to his mother's apparition in the sky, I thought it was quite cheesy. There was nothing edgy about the film, although I must say I was never bored.

    I liked this movie and had a good time with it. It came with the expected plot of three teens who try to contact ghosts and get more than they bargained for. It is a nice, self-contained story and the characters have issues that the evil force in the house exploits.

    Not about the true Villisca House Murder Story

    Would have been nicer if it had more to do with the actual Villisca house murder story. Good movie but fictional made up story took away from the true story. The effects were good. Movie was kinda all over the place. Had to watch two times to get the movie.

    The front cover and the hype on the back of the case definitely made this movie look promising. Had a great premise, competent cast, and interesting usage of a true event, but ultimately just never gained any real traction.

    I picked this up as an impulse buy and it turned out to be pretty interesting. I had no idea that the murders this film is based on actually happened.

    This is a very good story that they could've done a lot with. The acting is poor and the gore just wasn't there. SyFy movie at best.

    Typical paranormal kids seeking "contact" and got more than they bargained for while they were there.
