I'll be honest. I watched this film in daylight. I hadn't meant to. I'd had it all set up and ready to go the night before. But then I jumped three times just watching the trailer.
Perhaps I'm just a coward. In my defense, I had someone tell me that it was the scariest film that she'd ever watched. A host of reviews told me that otherwise hardened, desensitized horror movie fans were professing fear over this one.
I watched it in daylight. It took the edge off the creepy atmosphere, but still provided enough to get my heart racing at times. It's not the most frightening film ever produced, but it's good enough.
