What's it about
A professional videographer with a history of mental illness is being haunted by her dead sister, stalked by a guy who smokes in the dark and even talks to her dead boyfriend on a TV. Girl’s got some issues.
Is it good movie?
Jennifer is a woman with a haunted past. Her family died in a car accident in which she was the only survivor and she’s been having hallucinations of her dead little sister. Nothing went right until she met her current boyfriend, and they started a career being videographers and landed a sweet gig covering a presidential candidate. Then, her boyfriend gets killed, she starts being stalked and attacked by a mysterious assailant and her sister shows up again. How do you like the sound of that?
What we've got here is a low rent thriller that doesn’t have anything to offer that’s better than anything else you can pick up on the shelf. No good can come from a movie when you find yourself audibly groaning to yourself while watching it. The set up may be clichéd but as long as it has something to offer, I can put up with it. Unfortunately this movie comes up very short.
The acting can be pretty bad at times which really hurt my enjoyment of the whole deal.Every time the police were on the screen with their wooden acting, I shook my head. Only Del Negro comes off as a decent actor playing an attorney friend of Jennifer’s. The movie has a few jump scares every now and then but they aren’t scary in the least. There are also scenes of Jennifer talking to her dead boyfriend over her editing equipment while they try to figure out the big mystery which I thought was absolutely lame, a true dealbreaker. The film served up one final, stupid swerve to finish everything off, including me.

I've got to give this one a high recommendation….to avoid. The script is as lame as the scares, you can do much better.
