Huge Disappointment
27 July 2000 | by (Illinois) – See all my reviews

Ok picture this... your walking along the rows and rows of horror films just browsing 'till something catches your eye. You see "Cardiac Arrest" and read the description of it and you think it sounds soooo awesome and suspenseful. You think you have a winner. So, you take it to the desk and pay your hard earned money to rent it. You take it home pop it in the VCR and start watching it, throughout the movie you are feeling very disapointed. Its not scary, its not suspenseful, the actors suck,the plot is so boring and redundant, and the color is drab and very bad (No, its not my color settings on my TV). You hope it will get better, but NOPE the movie ends and it was a total waste of time, money, and shelf space. It just plain bites. Don't waste your money on it.
