5.4 really?
2 December 2010 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I just finished watching this movie and i was surprised at how good it was. in fact is was so good I'm on here trolling about it. but really 5.4 average?? are u kidding me. this movie is much better than a 5.4, what were they expecting a cheesy slasher horror movie or something. this movie was brilliant, shocking, unpredictable and gritty. none of the acting seemed off the movie is set in one room(well 2) which doesn't require a huge budget but it let them polish it up more with what they had to work with. I'm not saying this is perfect but its definitely going to be a cult classic if they refrain from making sequels or if they make an adequate sequel. don't let the IMDb average fool you. this movie is a must see for anyone who likes movies.

many won't like the ending because they are too pampered into only enjoying movies with happy Hollywood endings, if u are one of these people avoid this movie if u are not I'm sure you'll enjoy it.
