The perfect Mexican nightlight
22 June 2003 | by (New Jersey, Earth) – See all my reviews

I bought this DVD from for $1.88 and the shipping was more than that. I am a fan of movies like the Brainiac and all the wrestling horror flicks so when I read about this on a fansite, I thought I'd give it a go.

I propped the Mintek on my lap, leaned back and watched...then fell asleep. I woke up, backed up to the last scene I remembered, pressed Play...and fell asleep. The next time I woke up, I made a strong cup of coffee, then another because the first tasted so good, went back to the Mintek, pressed Play...and fell asleep.

Maybe this is one of those weird tapes like in the Ring, only instead of dying in seven days you fall asleep in 7 minutes.

What I remember was a bunch of Mexican people talking about Ouija boards with dubbed voices. There didn't seem to be much action...maybe it happened when I was asleep. Somehow I don't think so.

I recommend this movie to anyone who is having trouble sleeping.
