The worst movie I have ever seen in my life, 2 January 2009
Author: Chris Hewitt (chrish495@msn.com) from Brentwood, California

Folks, I've got sad news to deliver to you: never before in my whole life have I seen a more terrible movie. It's hard to even pinpoint what exactly is wrong with it because it is just so random and pointless. Let me put it as plainly as possible:

- The acting is awful. Just plain bad. It could be because the script was written so poorly with things like, "We need to leave." "Okay." But wow, it's just uninteresting and so so boring.

- The idea for the plot SEEMS interesting, like they had something going, but then it just leads itself into more "filler scenes", with no point, leaving you wondering "What the heck is going on"

- The movie ties itself together, but the problem is that its randomness leaves you puzzled.

- There is NOTHING scary about this whatsoever. The fact that it is rated 'R' leaves me in total awe. I was waiting for moments in any good horror/thriller, like something that actually makes me scream out loud or something, but the only things that happen are characters getting hit by shovels and whatnot. What gives?

- It claims there is an "astonishing twist" but is hardly original or even creative.

I want my money back, this is absurd. Unfortunately, I had gone to the store to rent this movie, unaware of how bad its rating here is, and how virtually unknown it is. A clue to that could have been that the actors aren't that well-known either.

Bottom line, DO NOT see this movie. It should have never been made. I would never recommend it in a thousand years. I wasted 82 minutes of my life. It's just so poorly written, badly acted, and horribly executed. Make sure the next time you see a movie, check it out and make sure it does well in the ratings, unlike this one.
