User Reviews

Well at least it's spelled correctly
7 September 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A group of five archaeologists close down the tourist prison island of Alcatraz while they research new findings recently dug up, this doesn't sit well with some of the guards who feel that this will put their upcoming raises on hold. However any animosity has to be put on the back burner as the found artifacts are in fact cursed *cue spooky music*

This was a hard film to watch, not because it's so violent (if anything it's extremely boring), but rather because it's horribly filmed, atrociously acted and deathly dull. Writer/director Daniel Zirili is old hat at making supremely crappy films so that in and of itself isn't surprising that this film stinks, what is though is that this is one of the few movies where he uses the letter Z in the correct way.
