Great Movie
23 February 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie is one id never heard of but after reading the good reviews and seeing the film for myself I am pleasantly surprised. If you like offbeat low budget films you will appreciate this one. Joe Zaso is great as is the rest of the cast. Worth having for the film buff for sure. Not to be missed so check it out. Surprising gore and murder scenes. Film students and films buffs will love it. Proves you don't have to have a big budget for a quality film. This shows you how you can make a film and be proud of it. Great effects and music. Joe Zaso is great in this one for sure he has done some amazing work so look for anything with him in it.
