A whole lotta nothing going on.
7 February 2004 | by See all my reviews

This movie reels you in right from its opening scene where a girl is sucked into some bushes. Then you watch expecting something else creepy like that first scene, but do you get it? The answer to that my friends is a resounding 'No'! This is a very dull movie, and if there is one thing I can't stand a horror movie to be it is for it to be dull. A bunch of dream sequences and this and that and then an event happens the next day where there is a car wreck and then the payoff. The main problem is I do believe this premise was stretched out a bit too much. This might have been a rather good short story, but there was just not enough stuff here for an hour and a half movie.
