It's a fun ride.
30 October 2006 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

I rented this movie after I saw the directors most recent movie Summer of Tomorrows, and this movie is totally different from his others. I have to say he's improved A LOT since this movie, but this one was still fun.

There are a lot of effects in this movie for a small indie flick and they're pretty good. This movie is a lot like something out of The Twilight Zone, or one of those old Outer Limits kind of stories. It's a little confusing, but the pieces actually fit together if you pay close attention.

This movie looks really good and I gave it 6 out of 10 because I think it's cool that it even exists and that so much was put into it. Sure it's not The Shining, but it has a creepy feel to it and some cool scenes.
