a fashion model is invited to a weekend away at a house in the country by a friend. when she gets there things are not what they seem and she is the victim of some very weird treatment by the people that live in the house.
Jessica Alba was the only reason i rented this movie, and to be honest this is possibly her career worst as far as performances go. the story had a little potential, but it was ever realised. the script was absolutely pathetic, Alba's lines might have been intended to make her look like the stereotypical stupid model, but even if you did believe in stereotypes, you would never believe in the stupidity of this character.
the director must have been out to lunch for the majority of the movie, as there seems to be absolutely no quality in the scene delivery. The rest of the cast for this film were minor players in the world of feature films, and definitely contributed to the mediocrity of the movie.
If you are a fan of Jessica Alba, then it is probably still worth still watching this film so that you can see her at her worst, and therefore appreciate he better performances. Otherwise don't bother, the cost of the rental is definitely prohibitive this is such a bad film.
