dont even waste your time
9 July 2003 | by (perth, australia) – See all my reviews

As bad as a movie can get.

the acting was truly terrible, and it didnt help that i saw this on dvd, and nearly every 15 minutes the screen faded in and out like the cheesy tv movie it was.

no suspense, no action, no real drama. i wasted over an hour of my life, for a movie that was classified as horror!

actually horror is a good word to describe this waste of time.
