    It is very rare for me to like a "horror" or even a suspense movie, but this one was pretty darn good. Definitely a low budget film, but it kept me interested the whole time and most of the characters were pretty believable. Had a very Stephen King feel to it. If you haven't seen it, you can catch it on Netflix.

    I Agree, intruiging concept. We all know words have power, what would happen if that power became random chaos?

    I was fascinated by the idea of saying a word until you don't know what it means. Who hasn't repeated some word again and again until it starts to sound strange and foreign and seems to unravel a bit and then you snap out of it and think "wow, that was weird." Just such a cool idea.

    I saw it when it came out in '08, an extremely well shot Canadian film. Its a great movie for aspiring filmmakers to learn from.


    I highly recommend watching it!

    Recently saw this myself, on NetFlix as well. Awesome movie, totally loved it. Definitely one of the most original horror films I've seen in a while. And I loved the main guys voice.

    The opening dialog is the best!!!! Oh, and the very end.


    Watch Infection to see another good small budget horror flick.
