This is a hyped Indy horror film that cashed in surprisingly at the mainstream theatres. Reason enough to believe it is special and at last a glimmer of hope for the American horror genre? Not really… It is not bad as an allegory on sex as sin, transmitted diseases as punishment. The notion of just passing on the curse not being sufficient, as it will bounce back if those down the line get killed by their curse-followers, is quite clever to make the paranoia credible. But beyond this concept there is not much to go for. It is all fair and well, but will not become a classic or cult film of any sorts. Its success is rather an indicator of the dire situation American horror has been in for years. Korea or France still have more frequent more exciting scares to offer.
