Did the director/writer/producer think they could pull this off and captivate the audience?
It seems as though they collected cut scenes from misc. B-movie horror flicks and pasted them all together for this movie. There is no continuity; at no time does the story move in any real direction; and scenes jump from the bizarre to the completely unrelated and even more bizarre. What makes them bizarre is not a surrealistic feel or inspired art, but God-awful acting and unrealistic situations.
The final scene of this movie is just ridiculous. It's an insult and a slap in the face of every moviegoer with an IQ over 50. Remember talking with your friends, about how cool it'd be to make a movie that was all just a meaningless dream? Well, it definitely ISN'T cool.
From the beginning scene (a completely meaningless and impossible murder of an unrelated and unexplained victim), to the weird masked-people from the rave, to the sicko lesbian with the quick, gross boobie shot, to the dead father Jude (Luke, what were you thinking?!), to the stupid stupid STUPID ending, this movie was a waste of time from its inception.
