Eric and Amy arrived home to witness what happened to Griffin and Eric released the grip when they come close. Inside the house, Kendra told everyone that she can’t locate Madison.
This movie is a very scary and a better version of Poltergeists because once the scares begin, they fly it fast and thick. The film has an impressive story line, great acting and great special effects. Being a horror fanatic movie, it was a surprised to know that they only add twists and effects in respects to the original film. If you really like scary movies then this movie is for you and a must watch, but after watching this film, you don’t get scared, then I believe that no other film will ever scare you.
