Warning: Shot On Video
10 May 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie should come with a disclaimer: Warning: Shot on Video....

and no, not the modern-day DV video....but plain-old grab the family video camera and make a movie kind of video.

Believe me, I'm a lover of trashy movies, especially 80's horror, but this was just unwatchable. I could only sit through about the first 20 minutes before shutting it off.

The only thing that was even remotely interesting was seeing the inside of the old-school video store.

The idea of the story is an interesting premise, but the lack of production value ruins it.

Remake anyone?

Avoid at all costs.
