Should have been called "Killer Stink"
30 October 2005 | by (victoria bc) – See all my reviews

The big problem with this movie is it takes it self seriously and the acting is pretty good.

That puts it in a category like "ghost ship" and this just does not compare.

The Special effects are few and far between and with the exception of a pretty cool bed death scene, all the special effects were cheaply done. Very little gore, the 18A is for titties.

Corbin Beansen is still good looking and can still act, but see him in "The dentist" not this very average slasher movie.

On a positive note, the one dimensional story has a nice end twist.
