A very poor, low budget film.
1 October 2007 | by (United Arab Emirates) – See all my reviews

I just saw this movie. Please don't believe the fake hype that's been going around obviously planted by the studio. This movie lacks continuity thru out and makes you lose interest after the first 30 minutes. It is not a horror movie. In fact I don't know which genre to put this into. It was definitely a snooze fest for me and I give it a 4/10 tops.

Shame on studio execs for planting fake positive reviews on IMDb. It beats the whole purpose of IMDb where people come to get unbiased ratings.

Please don't waste your time on this film if you are looking for some good chills and thrills. This movie will bore the hell out of you. Surprisingly the acting was good for the first 20 minutes or so making you think if the director lost interest in it after wards?
