How is the score over 5!? It's not horror, just horrible. In fact, extremely bad. Crap. Total crap.
1 April 2016 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Imma come right out and say it, this is one of the worst movies I have seen. And I've seen my fair share of movies. Also, I ALWAYS see the positive in movies, I'm pretty positive when it comes to movies. But this just sucks.

There is close to no entertainment to be had from this garbage. The plot is, oh, right, there is no damn plot. A couple of things happen, and some people talk. The story is so thin, it's about a minutes worth. Stretched to countless horribly boring hours. (it's actually just barely over one hour) The acting is bad, fake and stupid. Are any of the actors here actually trained actors anyway? Seems like they're all extras. Bad extras.

The budget has to be way below shoe-string, there is hardly anything to have a cost here at all. Nothing that can't be done with like, normal household stuff. And this is supposed to be horror, right? When there is no plot, at least give us some make up or special effects, something!

Right, there are a couple of scenes with some super fake looking blood, but it's just so bad. The blood looks like pink water. Cool bro.

So, to sum up: this movie sucks and blows, ducks and hoes. Is that not an expression? Well then smack my ass and call me Tomie!

There are a couple of scenes that are so strange they become sort of funny, but just one or two. And the main girls are pretty, that's something.

Avoid this garbage. At just over an hour, this is still boring as hell.
