Cheezy Fun
31 March 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Why is it the actress you want to get her kit off in a film, never does? I mean, we have two really good looking women in this otherwise completely forgettable movie, but instead of seeing their assets we end up viewing.. the Playboy reject's silicone enhanced bosoms.I may not get what I want, but I get what I deserve.

Anyhoo, if you like endlessly recycled horror story lines you'll love this. Family on the verge of bankruptcy.. forced to move to an old dilapidated house.. a gang of hooligans start harassing them.. place turns out to be haunted.. the daughter resembles the ghost's true love.. family defends home when the thugs attack in force.. the spirit aids them by dispatching the gang members in various gory ways. Then it concludes with a COMPLETELY UNPREDICTABLE TWIST ENDING! You'll never guess..

The hooligans are by far the best thing about the film. Each one has got their own unique dress sense and personality traits which make them more interesting than the two bland leads. The violence is a lot more comical than scary half the time, and the blood is seemingly tomato sauce mixed up with red food dye (although in one case it is deliberately fake). Essentially, this isn't a brilliant film but with a no-name cast and limited financing, what do you expect? Worth a 4/10 just about..
