Storyline

Four young women and three young men, totally strangers to each other, are sent to an isolated house with the crew members of a reality show to stay living together for three months without any means of communication with the exterior, and in the end, the winner will get a prize of US$ 100,000.00. When the cameraman is found dead in a barn, the group becomes hysterical, since nobody knows who is trustful. Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Reality Suck!
31 August 2012 | by (Bangalore, India) – See all my reviews

Saw this movie last night on Youtube. And as you probably presumed, this is indeed one of those low on spooks, a bit high on nudity and a lot on stupidity flicks!.

The premise looked interesting initially with seven contestants vying to be the winner of a Big Boss like reality show, but here there's even the director & his camera crew intruding to get exclusive clips for the TV audience! From there, it goes all downhill with negligible focus on the plot and more of a nutty killer on the loose who ticks off the contestants & the crew one by one and takes a video of it too. Even so, I liked some of the murders that happen which were shot in a suspenseful, "Scream" style fashion. But the final moments messed all the nicely done horror or whatever before it. The killer really behaved dumb as in D U M B! And an end which left me muttering, "What the....!".

But the performances were a surprise with a lot of them showing an earnest effort. Courtney Peldon(as one of the contestants Charlotte), Sticky Fingaz(has lots of potential, was bit disappointing to see in this muck) as Brock the director and Kristen Miller(a surprise package, with impressive expressions) as one of the crew are some of those that stood out.

Verdict: Alas, B acting + C story = still a C or a D movie :>
