    I watched this DVD last night. Skipped it in the theater, overall I enjoyed the film. Don't go in expecting a horror - it's more of a courtroom drama with some demons thrown in.

    One thing I must comment on is the bass. This whole disc is one big subwoofer demo. It really surprised me...and my SVS!

    The movie uses bass to scare you.

    I thought the movie was excellent. Made me jump a couple of times even though it is not meant to be a horror movie. Think the bass had something to do with it. [​IMG]
