This DVD makes a Great Drink Coaster ! Do Not Waste Your Time Or Money With This Movie, 22 September 2005
Author: majikmarkerz from United States

If you bought/rented this movie, then I have some swamp land to sell you. This movie was a horrible mix of every terrible B-movie made in the last 10 years and the Blair Witch Project.

After watching a trailer, I decided that this movie might be funny horror in the tradition of Evil Dead or Army of Darkness.... how wrong I was.

This movie has SERIOUS holes in the plots. After the first 10 minutes, this movie becomes very difficult to continue watching because of the serious plot flaws. The Anti-hero is basically a bum that lives in a tin shack, yet has a fur coat (wtf!). It makes no sense what-so- ever. Then the Anti-hero meets the other hero character (they don't know each other) Then the next scene they are running around like childhood friends. That is just the beginning of the long trail of inconstancies that will make you want to scratch your eyes out.

I would recommend this movie for film Teachers to use as a tool to show what you don't want to do in a movie.

Desperate Souls is a great example of these sub-par home-made horror movies that the studios buy for dirt cheap, then they like to roll them out around Halloween. DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR MONEY WITH THIS MOVIE! ! ! ! !

I predict the only people watching this movie are the folks that starred in it.

If IMDb would let me rate it a (-) negative number I would.
