"You call. They'll answer."

A group of friends discover a way to summon ghosts using an ancient embalmed hand. They become addicted to the new sensation until one of them goes too far and opens the door to the spirit world.

Heavily hyped horror that was rather disappointing. Surely we've all seen this before - and often better.

A group of teenagers enter the spirit world and things go wrong. A 0 for originality. The power should then be in the execution, but that was also very mediocre. There has been some shopping for films such as The Exorcist and Insidious, but it lacks its own identity. Creating a strong atmosphere didn't really work out and it didn't get really exciting anywhere. The most important elements to make a horror really good were therefore not highlighted.

However, there are some positive points. The film is built up at a good pace and does not get bogged down in laughable absurdities, a well-known pitfall of the genre. There are also some strong scenes, including the first time Mia makes contact with the ghosts and Riley's escalating session. Acting was generally okay.

The lack of atmosphere, tension, scares or visual delights made it all in all a bit boring. The music was downright annoying.

The film uses well-known horror clichés - in particular the Ouija board to summon the spirits of the dead (and the mixing of this world and the realm of the dead or hell, possession (by the devil) and the curse that is passed on each time a new victim – and in that sense is a 13-in-a-dozen horror film, but where twelve out of a dozen is an insult to the intelligence of the viewer (often also intended for an uncritical adolescent audience) with an illogical plot development, a lot of nonsense and a 'horror' consisting of scares and/or a lot of blood, this film is the 13th better horror film that is remarkably frugal with scares and massacres because it has a good story that makes sense (also nicely rounded: the end is again the beginning) and which has a basis in reality. In fact, the parallel with drug use is so obvious that the film can be seen as a metaphor for it with the message that you should not go too far in experimenting and lose control loses (follow the instruction) and it is better not to give hallucinogenic drugs to minors and certainly not to a mentally unstable person: the clue of the story is essentially that a traumatized girl (who has lost her mother and does not believe she will be seen) falls into a psychosis due to the hallucinatory experiment and becomes a danger to herself and her surroundings.

In terms of the drug metaphor, the film also reminded me a bit of Robert Louis Stevenson's literary masterpiece Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1886) because that story's famous transformation essentially describes a drug addiction: Robert Louis Stevenson: Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde (1886) .

Great video, not as strong as I had thought in advance, but certainly no regrets that I paid to see it. Wonderful actress in the lead role who really carried the film.

Thought the film was actually too short, I would have liked more detail.
