cheesy effects and cheap CGI
3 December 2014 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

This is one of those DVD's that you can find for almost free in new condition and it shows why. Still, it's a mystery how those flicks can be distributed all over the world without any problem, you get it, this is really bad.

It's bad on part of acting, editing and the way it was shot. When the production is using CGI then it's really laughable but when the corpses pop up at the ending they really looked fine. It's so strange that some effects are pure crap and others were well done. The worst thing in CGI is when a ghost smashes one's head, the blood splatters on-screen but purely CGI and it really looks stupid.

The story isn't worth watching but being really bad for some it even becomes good. I was also surprised that we do have a bit of juggs being shown here and there by the main lead Tatum Adair.

If you are into Z-flicks with laughable effects this is one to pick up but thinking that you will be necking a brewskie and are having the time of your life then you are really wrong.
