A film by Tobe Hooper
3 November 2010 | by See all my reviews

My summary line will be something of an inside joke that only people who have watched the movie at the Frightfest in London earlier this year (2010) will understand. Those who went ahead and watched it of course. And stayed until the end. Because this is very experimental. Very different too.

And yes if you like it, you will state that this is good because it isn't like any Hollywood movie (well it's not supposed to be). And yes it has it's scenes (though the staircase montage gets a bit annoying after a bit). And also yes to the fact, that this is not really a horror movie. It is more a sci-fi movie than a horror movie. Just in case you expected that, from the man who brought you Texas Chainsaw Massacre (the original that is).

If you are into experimental movies with (almost) no story at all, than this might be for you. Ignore my rating (and all the others who said it's not good). I'm not gonna tell you, how to feel about the weird things you (probably) are about to see.
