Honestly, I still think this movie has good horror potential you know why? Because of its low a$$ budget!!! High budget horror movies are not as scary. There's something about low budget horror movies (Halloween part one) that just dominates all other high budget horror movies. I'm the kind of individual that can fall asleep in a haunted house after having just watched exorcist but I still think I can analyze horror movies since I watched them ever since I was a child.
