Not horror at all
29 November 2009 | by (Prague, Czech Republic) – See all my reviews

The horror movie must have some attributes. This movie has three story lines, but no connection among them. There is story about musician who has trauma from his childhood. There is story line about Nazis (only in the end of movie). And there is story about some ghosts but they do nothing. The ghosts don't move objects, don't kill, don't scare, only sometimes they walk around and pass away. Oh yes, and some moments are like from lesbian porno movie and you don't know why these scenes are in the movie.

Well, the acting is also terrible. And at the end of movie, when the hero has clear all now, the sun rise - so the stupid viewer can understand it all is clear now. Some actors can do that only by acting itself.
