  • The title reminds me of a prayer I heard when I was a kid (maybe that’s where the title came from?? Idk) it goes like this: Now I lay me down to sleep I pray the lord my soul to keep if I should die before I wake I pray the lord my soul to take amen It was a pretty creepy prayer tbh

  • This movie was definitely better than some other horror movies I've seen. The actors were good but the ending did seem kind of cold when it came to the husband. I can see where the mother was wrong in using cody but unless you have lost a child, you will never understand that pain and guilt. She was wrong in using the boy for her own want of seeing her son and her husband did seem to care about cody more than she did. I would have wanted my husband back home and not wished everyone else a happy ending except my self. Maybe that was the unselfish part. Her son had his dad and wasn't alone anymore.

  • awh I thought this movie would be scary I just watched it and i wasn't scared at all! I really want to find a horror movie that is rated PG-13 that will scare me. I have watched the sixth sense, lights out, and now before I wake as well, but they did not scare me. Does anybody have any recomendations of movies that are actually scary? (and PG-13 rated)
