Quite possibly the WORST movie I have ever seen!
13 January 2004 | by (New York,NY) – See all my reviews

I want to give imdb the highest of praise. I was telling my best friend you guys have EVERYTHING on here and he cocked an eyebrow and said"VICIOUS"?? Now Im sure alot of you have never even heard of VICIOUS. Me and my pal are big horror buffs and in our younger days we saw a copy of VICIOUS in the horror section of her video store. The picture on the cover was a young girl dissheveled and screaming in terror crouching in a hallway. We thought "Giddyup!" Only to get the film home and find its about a group of ne'er-do-well hooligans. In the beginning of the movie they pick up two girls, one of which is named Sandy...(I remember cuz I had a friend named Sandy at the time). Within moments there is shtooping in the back of the car. Next thing we know these dudes have broken into a house and are tormenting the couple that lives there a la DESPERATE HOURS. Only it's not fun or amusing or even scarey or shocking "torment" its dull and slow paced torture.(In essence, torture for the viewer). The scene we shall never forget(and we try,believe me!) is when the lady of the house offers one of the hoodlums something to drink and he snarls "JUICE!". The woman then asks "What kind of juice" and he growls "GRAPEFRUIT JUICE!" Who WROTE this script? It wasnt Ernest Hemmingway,thats for sure! I would say it has to be seen to be believed, bt its really so dull and pointless and the story has been pretty much told...BETTER...in other flicks of this nature. The thing that really makes this movie a suckfest is the fact that it is so obviously marketed as a horror when its really dull TRAINSPOTTING BREAKS INTO A HOUSE. Avoid this movie at all costs.
