real strange
6 August 2015 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

not the film. only presence of few actors with clear potential for decent work and the choice for Edgar Allan Poe. because it is one from many confuse films about nothing, who use a great piece of literature for a real ambiguous purpose. the good intentions are not enough in this case because it has not a start point and a finish line. it seems creepy and inspired by Gothic but without relevant result. the Ukrainean flag on a Russian palace is the best proof for an improvisation who remains only game with old clichés. bad detail is the fact than the film has not desire to convince the viewer. all is only a boring travel among stereotypes of genre, ignoring substance or a little dose of credibility. only a fake horror who use Wes Bentley, Eric Roberts and Michael Madsen only as hangers for poor characters.
