a waste of time
11 June 2008 | by See all my reviews

This is far out the worst ''horror'' movie (if we can call it that) i've seen in a long time. The story has been done before and it's totally predictable (since like, the 1st 20 minutes or so),and the apparent second twist on the end is so lame and doesn't add anything to the movie. It looks like just a silly attempt of making it look like an original story. The acting is sooo bad and the dialogs absolutely lame and unworked. i recommend it if you're having trouble to fall asleep, than it may help. I wouldn't even include this movie in the horror genre, since the exaggerated''tenderness'' in the acting and the mellow unrealistic dialogs makes it look more like a family/drama/fantasy.This movie is a total waste of time.
