The best stuff since long time.
7 September 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Maybe others missed a more logic story, but well this is not literature! Here we have passionate movie from passionate filmmakers. They know what's the reason why their audience watches their movies: We want hard stuff! Deaths and fears! The joy here is to see the fall of TV-Stars. That is real justice! A not even average script has been filmed and directed to a fresh, young and powerful punch in your face! Love this movie or hate it -but well: We will definitely see these filmmakers again, no doubt on that. Lots of suspense and violence filmed in great pictures. Just take some more looks at the story, and we will be testimonials of great horror and thriller stuff!
