Quite simply the worst film I ever saw
22 August 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I was thirteen when I saw this film. Some friends of mine were big fans of horror films. I wasn't particularly a fan but I knew what to expect. "Survival Zone" wasn't at all what I expected. I have a soft spot for this movie and would love the opportunity to see it again. But I'm afraid to say that is because I distinctly recall it as being the worst film I ever saw. I mean....the doll's head on top of the that supposed to be scary? Evidently it was supposed to be. It wasn't.
