Unimaginative and Predictable
18 February 2011 | by (Dublin,Ireland) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie at the Bram Stoker film festival in Whitby last year. Words cannot accurately describe how awful this film was.

Top of the list was predictable. The story line for the film has been overdone and was not original by any means. Acting...awful, especially on the directors behalf. I think a new director should stick to one task. Instead of acting and directing, put your concentration into the film. The only reason this won an award at the film festival was the directors entire family, friends and neighborhood were there voting.

I would not see this again, nor would I ever recommend it to a friend, or even admit to friends I had actually seen it to begin with!

I wish I could give this film a 0 instead of 1 for UN-originality!
