This film...
19 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

…made me want to physically shoot myself in the face. It is so bad that by the end of it I can guarantee you will have completely lost all faith in a decent horror movie. It started and I didn't know what to expect, within five minutes I was thinking "God, this is terrible!" and after fifteen minutes I had become heavily depressed and was on medication! The cast: The main characters are an extremely annoying family of four made up of: two parents who add literally nothing to the story and who seem not to care for their children whatsoever and leave them alone for basically all of the film; their daughter, a Goth who has less acting talent then Johnny Rotten on crack cocaine and who always plays tricks on her brother; who in turn is an excruciating boy with the most irritating accent I have ever heard who constantly screams for his mother. He's nothing but a spoilt brat (and if I were his sister, I would spend less time playing pranks on him, and hang him!).

The plot: The plot of the film is less interesting then a nine-month-old baby's dream. The family move house and the daughter is put into a chavy new school where she meets the "boy of her dreams" (a blonde, retarded young fellow who walks around aimlessly, constantly wearing a false, sycophantic smile which makes you want to punch him in the face.). Anyhow, random things happen (whilst the audience falls asleep with boredom) - the retarded, blonde kid goes out with the Goth's new rival (who has another irritating accent) and the two brattish girls prank each other in unimaginative ways. Then the Goth buys a horror book and her brother (while still screaming for his mother) begs her to read the book. Upon reading it, she unleashes a monster. The "monster" is like something that Monster A Go-Go chucked out! It's basically just a huge cardboard cut-out that lumbers along, growls and savages people. Shocking! I went on IMDb to read some terrible reviews on this film, and have a laugh, but when (for some reason I can't explain) they were all positive, I decided to do my part.

I have an obligation as a citizen of the world to warn you against this film. If you watch it, it will destroy your health and your sanity. It is without doubt the worst film I have ever seen and I didn't even watch it to the very end (thank God!). I didn't choose to put it on, I saw it at a friend's party (the poor soul not only has seen it all the way through, he keeps the wretched thing in his house!!!!!!!!!!!!!) Please don't watch this thing. It should be burned. I could make a better film than this, and if you don't believe me then give me a job as a director! I have only just recovered from this film and I would happily line everyone involved in it up, tie them up and force them to watch endless repeats of "Manos: The Hands Of Fate" for eternity.
