The first time I saw this I was so freaked out. But I love it, spooky and no blood and guts, some scratches but that is it.

Excellent idea, great writing, solid performances credit to credits, well done film.

I would like to break down how well everyone did, however since everyone did such a great job it is easier just to group everything together. This is a fantastic cast and all of them have simply wonderful performances.

The idea ... medical students explore the afterlife. The idea of intentionally killing oneself is pretty screwed up in itself and sets the stage for some crazy things.

One of the things that I really like about this film is the lighting (It was done in a style similar to The Exorcist.) The film has a lot of contrast in light and dark, it is best with the lights off, so that you get the visual effects (and so you can see what is going on in the darker sections.)

This is definitely one of the genres best, I'm not sure if it hits top 10 but this movie is a keeper. I dust mine off twice a year, it is the kind of movie that knowing what happens doesn't make it any less frightening. Fantastic Thriller .... A+.

Recommended.
