Very Low Budget - and shows it
12 November 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

When people talk about low budget films, they tend to think (and therefore comment on) the very visible elements of the film -- often, the criticism is to the camera work, lighting, visible flaws in the film, or more frequently, the acting. In the case, the acting, while not award-winning, isn't the biggest criticism -- although the actors do have to accept some blame for some of the lack of believability of their performances, especially towards the middle and particularly to the end of the plot. However, in this particular case, the low-budget appellation has far more to do with the horror/thriller elements of the plot and how they were conveyed, but the most responsibility lies with the script (which could easily have used more polish and a rewrite of key points) and the director, who ultimately must accept responsibility for the overall finished product, if he uses the script as written.

As a movie, there's not enough over-all, from start to finish -- to recommend this. If I did not have a friend into horror who thought there would be eye candy in the film, I would never had seen it at a film festival last year, on a free ticket. The movie is being offered as a free preview for the Logo channel, on demand to digital subscribers, which is what reminded me of the movie recently, but just watching the first ten minutes of it -- again for free -- reminded me of all the problems this movie had.

Not at all recommended, other than as an experiment on how to finish and finalize a movie.
