Reviews:

“This might have been scary if it was done right. But it’s all so dull and by the numbers […] Did I mention almost nothing of any consequence happens? One minor character, (a black friend of one of the leads of course), dies. Everyone else ends up with nothing more than a ruined weekend and material for a few nightmares.” Voices from the Balcony

Choice dialogue:
Sarah: “We need an exorcist, not an archaeologist.”
