Quite simply the worst film ever.
11 June 2003 | by (Cambridge, England) – See all my reviews

Written, produced, directed and starred in by Keith Singleton, this film is quite simply the worst I have ever seen. Admittedly, the female cast is quite easy on the eye, yet Singleton could think of nothing more imaginative than a quite gratuitous sex seen involving him and his 'suspicious' girlfriend.

Some of the scenes are quite simply bizarre- to pick one, the camera (shaky and excessively zoomed in as is the case in the majority of the film) pans across to a Matron like figure in the office of the psychiatrist (who is possibly the worst actor you will ever see), accompanied by the ever present, bizarrely selected and ludicrously timed 'tension creating soundtrack'. The one point in the film where you are led to believe that there may be a twist in the storyline, nothing more is seen of this mysterious figure!

Possibly the worst thing about this film is that, unlike the case in many other poor films, Singleton seems to have made the film in complete sincerity, so even the 'comedy badness' edge is absent.

If only there were a 0/10 category...
