BEWARE PARENTS and EVERYONE else...Don't even waste your money, time
PARENTS BEWARE: This movie is extremely graphic in nudity and sexual content. It verges on porn and should have a NC17 rating!!!
I can't comment on the 3D b/c I have a rare eye condition that doesn't allow me to see 3D. The person I saw the movie with did say the 3D was horrible and only a few scenes were shot in 3D. First off, the movie should be rated NC17. The graphic female nudity was over the top...more than your typical full frontal nudity. Some sexual content that is expected from horror franchises these days. And a severed penis just to mention a few things without spoilers. The movie is not funny and is not scary. If you are a horny teenager who likes campy blood/gore that is not scary - this is the movie for you.
The underwater shots were dark and bloody, so you couldn't see much. It was not scary, not funny, and not entertaining. I did not flintch once, I didn't laugh once, I wasn't entertained at all. In fact, we almost walked out; but for $13 each because it is only showing in 3D near our home, we decided to see if it got better. Unfortunately, the amount of bad got super worse. The ending was ridiculous and predictable.
I hope I can get the word out so no one else goes to see this crappy movie. I am a huge horror fan, but this is not horror for the big screen. It verges on pornographic nudity and campy gore that doesn't look real/scare you. I know it has its place in the horror genre, but it should have gone straight to video with the likes of Antichrist and Razortooth and Camp Blood.
Alexandre Aja did a wonderful, scary, well-directed, unpredictable movie called Tera Haute (High Tension in English). High Tension was phenomenal. I expected the same from him with this movie. Obviously, Aja took the money and spent it on durgs and alcohol for him and his crew, because there is no way anyone in their right mind would think this movie would be great on their resume or on the big screen. I feel bad for the talented actors(actresses) in this movie because it will hurt their career. Obviously, they just needed a quick buck because they haven't made a movie in a while.
