This has to be the worst movie I have seen in ages...and the budget was what?
I have seen better movies made in peoples basements....the scene with the plastic flowers and the foam headstones was just awful....and the voice of Lily's dad...why that would scare the devil himself. And the jump cuts....man o man o man ....film school at worst....The acting by Amy Redford was overdone as was most of the others...Graham Greene looked and acted like he was mad as hell through the whole thing...Lee Majors gave an OK performance considering the lines he had to read.. Many of my friends who have also seen the movie thought the Selma March scene looked like a remake of Return of the Living Dead. I must say that some of the scenes of the Tennessee River were breathtaking...but got pretty old after the third or fourth shot of them. All and all let's hope this movie stays in the can.
