Seen plenty of creepy house films, and seen plenty worse than this. I saw this without having seen the original and not being aware of the "single shot" gimmick. So as a simple creepy house film how does it stack up? All depends on what your taste in creepy/horror/haunted house films is. If you want action and gore you will most likely be disappointed. If you like slow build up and tense atmosphere you might well enjoy it quite a lot, as I did. I thought on the whole it was very well done, and I enjoyed all the creeping about, with the jumps and scares you would expect. Lead actress was great in my opinion. Again a matter of taste but I thought she was quite charismatic and really stole the show. Camera work was great, even if the single continuous shot technique was somewhat wasted on me! Minus points for unoriginality and somewhat confusing plot towards the end. I am surprised at the harsh reviews for this film as I think is pretty classy, even if it does not bring anything new to the table. Since watching this I saw the original version which was effective but had a different tone, and overall I much prefer the remake.
