Must see - worst movie I have ever seen
29 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It's hard for me to confirm this movie with the sparse IMDb data and no photos from the film, but that's understandable. The timeline is right and I knew this film by the name Rock House. My roommate in college rented this and I got half the dorm to watch it and everyone agreed it was the worst film they had ever seen. There is something about the effort they put into the writing and entirely screwing up the social genres, the technical flaws in the story, and the shear lack of emotional performance but it all comes together in this emotion finger nails across a chalk board performance that leaves you wondering what were they thinking?
