Worst movie ever, if you are roped into seeing this one try to fall a sleep within the first 5 minutes so that you wont have to endure the horrific plot and even poorer acting. The badly developed story makes the movie tedious to watch falling into the "I don't really care what happens in this movie as long as it ends" category. The makeup was really bad as well, actors looked mentally inadequate. This movie even makes "Soul Plane" look good.

Please don't watch this movie as it only encourages the sad sad people who make junk like this.
