  1. I actually wanted to do a blog on this movie. I love these mystery/horror movies. I was so interested in the film as I began reading the summary. But I hate watching these types of movies alone. That is probably why I didn’t choose to do this movie. As much as I love watching these types of movies I hate it at the same time. I get so scared during the movie but also afterwards. It’s really so weird. But I give props to you for being able to watch this movie and can’t wait to hear all about it and the themes connected to this movie! I’m sure there’s a ton! Did Officer Woodward end up finding out what happened about the disappearance of the young girl? You have to tell us!

  2.
