not as bad as i expected
2 June 2004 | by See all my reviews

not as bad as i expected still no better then mediocre the acting isn't great but overall it was tolerable and mostly acceptable the effects are solid and it has a cool head decapatation moment near the end this was quite watchable and the production values were good and it is quite well made on a low budget it has some truly creepy scenes and the score is chilling but it is ruined by the lame ending and poor dialog and characters we could care less about and it was predictable as well and it is a Rosemary's baby clone (only not as good) check out the laughable scene where our lead character where our lead character wakes up from a dream and starts screaming and totally overacting still it has some creepy dream sequences and overall this was a watchable time that is worth a rent but it is only average at best ** out of 5
