...and run. I usually like bad movies... because they make me laugh. That one didn't come close. So far I thought that Blood Legacy was the worst movie I had ever seen... Well I was wrong, at least the later made me laugh twice, let's say three times. If you notice that this one is playing on the tube...do something else...like go to the dentist... it'll be less painful believe me.
