This movie is based on a cult classic video game and for the most part feels like a video game. You have those happy moments were you find a secret in the game - example when rose finds the flashlight in a locked drawer. At times it even seems like they pushed this on you to much. The story for the most part seems like something Stephen King would have written. So it becomes a cross between a Stephen King film and a Hellraiser film. If you are a fan of either of those you will most likely like this movie. I was enteratined by this movie but I am pretty sure I won't watch it again. Though after seeing this, I am quite curious about the games that is was based on.
