Great fun
24 August 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Really can't compliment this movie enough considering it's no doubt tight budget constraints. The last scrappy indie movie to come up with a smart concept and execute it this well was Blair Witch. Quite refreshing to see a low budget "genre" picture that's actually well-made and delivers the goods. Filmmakers were smart about locations (Brooklyn industrial areas) and using Halloween night in NYC as a backdrop. Very nicely shot, well-edited, but above all it's the acting that makes this movie stand out. Has both broad and subtle humor and it's a lot of fun. Expect creators behind this production to go on to do other bigger and better things.
