When this first came out people were really excited about it not to mention Keatons in it! But then people saw and came back with really negative reactions and that's when I lost all interest at all in seeing it. Then it hit DVD and I decided oh what the hell and I popped it in. I gotta say I really liked it and I really don't see where all the hate is coming from. Was it perfect? No But I still can't say it was anywhere near bad. I thought that the concept of a man watching a tv with bad reception and listening to bad mic feedback woyuld be boring but after watching the film I gotta say it was pretty atmospheric. It actually made me forget it was a pg-13 film and get sucked into it which is really rare for me. As a matter of fact im not really into ghost stories but this got me. I also heard some people comment on Michael Keaton's acting and I think he did just fine here. His kid? not so much but he really wasn't on screen that much. All in all I think it was a good movie that people really didn't turn out for. The box office wasn't that high was it?
