House of Terrible Actors
22 December 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Quite a few low budget horror films have a couple of bad actors but how did they manage to fill this one full of them?! Is their a casting school just for crap actors? This movie sent for them...

The old guy who the nurse first works for and then marries is an Omar Sharif lookalike with a Frank Zappa tash, just spends his time sat down drinking booze. I don't blame him either. The nurse just gets hysterical now and then, the old guy's wife emotes and chews the scenery. And the nurse's murderous boyfriend has all the charm of week old pizza, although we are supposed to believe he has the charisma to induce his girlfriend to help murder the old guy, now husband.

Story tries to be a cross of 'The Postman always rings twice' or 'Body of Evidence,' fails and is strictly very amateur hour.

I was losing the will to live when the late wife's identical twin sister turns up to add to the plot. This shock twist didn't help and I was so pleased when the sad sorry mess finally finished.

Give this a miss and do something more worthwhile like counting your toenail clippings.
