No plot, no originality, no stars -- and no reason for you to go and see this crap.

The film is not quite suspense-free, but almost. When finding a dead body underwater isn't scary, something is very wrong.

Cinema Crazed
It's a safe dumb film for safe dumb audiences.

If there's a single dead-wrong instinct in this movie that isn't pursued with the blind determination of an amorous terrier during high-scent season, darned if I can remember it.

...just as needless a remake as one might've expected.

Amateurish direction by Simon West ("Laura Croft: Tomb Raider") contributes to the utter failure of this pathetic update of the original film of the same title.

I can't help feeling that this updating could have been a little more imaginative -- the only wrinkle on the basic plot is that it uses mobile phones.

You know a horror movie's in trouble when the fake scares outweigh the real ones.
May 16, 2006
A production that never comes close to realizing its potential to tweak the viewer's primal fears.

If you've seen either Black Christmas or Halloween, there's nothing new here: the hyped-up score keeps telling us we ought to be scared, but the suspense feels mechanical and fake.

The original should have been a short film; the new version shouldn't exist at all.

Village Voice
This version is a thin, protracted study in shifting Hollywood strategies.
