When ranking this among recent American horror movies, it's definitely near the top with films like Midnight Meat Train, The Last Exorcism and Drag Me To Hell. You have to be in the mood for something dreary and dirty, as in grimy, but it's definitely worth a watch.
I'm already getting in the mood for Halloween, and this looks like one to put on my list.
btw, as to Rathbone, I actually liked "The Last Airbender" and will admit it.
