Don't Waste Your Time Watching This Film
5 October 2010 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In the Dark Ages, a gypsy woman made a pact with Beng, the gypsy devil, to marry a powerful man; in return, Beng asked her first born child. Her daughter Matya (Zelda Williams ) had the mark of the devil and was killed by the haunted villagers.

In 1928, the Hungarian director Bela Olt (Eli Roth) decides to shoot Matya's story with the lead gypsy actress Lila Kis (Rachael Murphy); however, the director, the cast and the crew vanished with the film that has never been seen.

In the present days, the discredited medium director Marcus Reed (Reshad Strik) and his producer Josh Petri (Henry Thomas) head to Romania to make a film about Matya's story. Marcus had a breakdown some time ago and now his friend Josh has given the opportunity to return to his promising career. However, the director, cast and crew are haunted in the set by an evil spirit and the survivors drive insane.

"Don't Look Up" is a terrible film with a messy and incoherent screenplay. The idea of a movie in a movie is not original and I have recently watched the potentially cult "The Hills Run Red" (2009) and the romantic "La Vita Che Vorrei" (2004). But "Don't Look Up" is confused and does not make sense, and my advice to the reader is to not waste your time watching this film. My vote is three.

Title (Brazil): "A Semente do Mal" ("The Evil Seed")
