Its in the middle of the scary chart. I would say it is a very good movie to show at a party. It might be more intense than scary. Its defidently a real thriller edge-of-your-seat movie. Id think your friends would actually find it fun! Just be sure to watch the 'how its made' part after!!!!!! Good luck!!!! Very amazing movie!
I think both versions of this movie are good. The newer version is more creepy then scary. There are lot of cheap jump scares. Like sudden loud noises and such to make you jump. PS the audio drama and book are worth looking into as well.
