Good. Good. Good.
3 October 2004 | by (IN) – See all my reviews

Bizarre film from the same guy that brought us Night Train to Terror, this movie is about a guy who is friends with a talking bear. He sees a bunch of weird stuff in a hotel (kind of like The Shining... VERY MUCH like The Shining, in fact) and then he sort of goes insane for no apparent reason. The climax of the film is the tagline to the movie, so it's no surprise that he kills almost 40 people, also for no apparent reason. Odd film that goes nowhere and is pretty much unmemorable after you get done watching it.

However, I really enjoyed myself as I watched it, and it definitely held my interest. It's not really a confusing film, and it's loaded with tons of good scenes: The main character shows up naked to church in the beginning of the movie. That scene alone is priceless. Though I liked this film, it'd be difficult to recommend it; I have no idea who else would like a film like this. You might as well check it out, but the ending has already been ruined for you.
