Very impressive attempt given the low budget.
18 November 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

The budget for this one is obviously low, with amateurish acting and cheap, occasionally silly effects. The acting is the greater issue though, for the effects are quite endearingly gross in a few places and also deployed to maximum effect in the service of an excellent, vaguely Lovecraftian plot line. The plot and writing are the best thing here, keeping the story gripping and masterfully unfolding the strange events. Even the low grade acting can't dampen the intrigue that this movie conjures and there are times, especially during the trippy, surrealistic dream sequences that the movie is pretty darn cool. Also Darby Vasbinder is very nice to look at as the dream temptress. The film comes close to an eight for me, but is taken down by the ending, which ends up a little generic and tedious, compounded by the effects showing their budget and the acting not managing to convince. This stops the film from being fully satisfying, although it is still well worthwhile for the more adventurous minded horror fan.
