25 March 2014 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Dreadful acting. Terrible effects. The directing was bad, script was bad. There isn't much that wasn't horrendously bad about this flick. But the absolute worst was the female lead. THe actor was one of the worst actors I have ever seen and her character was the single most stupid woman in the history of woman-dom. I wont go into details but let's just say if there was a cliff near her she'd deliberately run off it and then scream for help and wonder how she got in that predicament.

Do not waste your time on this movie. I am serious. You'll only end up feeling like banging your head repeatedly against a brick wall like I do.

If you want to see a 1000 x better movie with a similar subject watch Splinter. It's one of my favourites and has everything going for it that this flick lacks.
