This is an Indie film that is pretty good, nothwithstanding the obvious reminders that it is a low budget project.


The image is nice and sharp, and of course, since it is a scary movie, there is good use of the surrounds.


These include Unlocking the Uninvited, Deleted Scenes, and the Alternate Ending.
