Avoid, avoid, avoid
27 July 1999 | by (Gothenburg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

When I went down to the video store to rent this movie I looked at the back of the film and read the short description of the movie. It looked kind of cool and had a somewhat interesting story so I decided to rent it.

In the introduction of the movie you see people cleaning out an old prison and in the background you hear this blues/soul music. This was the first hint that the movie was bad.

If I wanted blues I would have rented The Blues Brothers, but I wanted a horror movie so the tune felt all wrong.

To sum this up. The movie was bad and not really a horror movie. More of a drama/thriller. I have three carefully chosen words for this movie. Avoid, avoid and avoid.
