Not even close to garbage.
26 January 2004 | by (Auckland) – See all my reviews

This movie is deplorable. As the title suggests, the movie slips into darkness, together with many other unknown bad movies. Even the character names are third-rate.

The only thing that caught my interest is the poor dog that appears a few times in the movie - first it gets hit by a car, then it is abandoned in the middle of nowhere. Unless you enjoy watching really bad movies -the kind that you would only find at some forsaken corner of a very small and dirty video store-, I recommend you stay away from this one.

2/10
