I'm currently watching 'Paranormal Activity 3', but while watching movie, I can see elements of it that were incorporated into the above movie 'Mama'....as in little girl running around at night playing with, interacting with Ghost/Demon.
There's a scene in 'Mama' where exact same thing occurs, only 'Paranormal Activity 3' was released about 4 years or more before 'Mama' came out.
Great films seem to copy from each other if you pay attention to details.
This movie came out in 2008, yet gets very little fan fare or mention ever. I wouldn't say it's amongst the best scary movies ever, but does deserve mention.
In fact I'd have to categorize in more in the slasher category.
I discovered it after purchasing one of the horror movie bundles you get in the Walmart $5.00 movie bins.
It's actually not a bad movie, and has interesting characters you can half way relate to.
I find it entertaining on many levels and have watched it several times.
It sort of at first has that 'B' movie feel to it, but as movie moves along, there are some interesting twists.
And if watching alone at home on dark night with surround sound stereo, you might find yourself jumping at a few scenes, or turning away, not just from gore, but from some truly spooky images, or 'gotcha' type of scenes.
Not one of the best horror movies ever, but maybe one of the best or under rated non franchise slasher movie. Sadly unless movies like this franchise their production, meaning have sequels, than they're usually forgotten about fairly quickly.

Not a bad movie at all that kind of revisits high school years, clichés, peer pressure, bullying and it all, with a added horror twist.
This movie never gets mentioned in top horror movie lists, and I think it should...maybe not the most scariest per say, but definitely one of the most disturbing, in that it just has a kind of realistic twist to it...like invasion of the body snatchers did...definitely worth checking out.
