Horror film about a college student (Kristen Bell) who, in trying to get to the bottom of the suicide of her computer whiz boyfriend (Jonathan Tucker), discovers -- together with her fellow dorm residents (Christina Milian and Rick Gonzalez) and an off-campus techie (Ian Somerhalder) -- that before taking his life he had inadvertently activated a computer virus that opened a portal between the living and the dead, enabling the departed to cross over through computers or cell phones, with menacing, global consequences. Director Jim Sonzero's bleak and listless remake follows the blueprint of the 2001 Japanese original, but despite some creepy effects, provides too few frights throughout its incoherent plot and lacks the hauntingly understated eeriness of the Asian version. Some scary and suspenseful sequences, a couple of suggested sexual encounters, a suicide, some crude language and humor, as well as a few instances of rough language and profanity. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
