Worst drug movie I've seen
14 September 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Saying this movie is a poor man's Requiem for a Dream is an overstatement. This film was produced by LittleBo productions and Kat Scratch films, which if you've ever seen any film by either of these companies you know to go the other way. The actors in this movie make Shaquille O'Neal look Oscar worthy in his Kazaam role. It's not that I don't have a taste for the small budget film, just the acting and characters in this film are underdeveloped. The fact that makes Requiem For A Dream so monumental is that you connect and feel for the characters; In this movie you can't wait for them to ruin their lives and the movie to end because the characters are so unlikeable and annoying. Don't make a decrepit movie that can be compared to something epic.
