very bad amateurish movie
14 September 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

everything about this film is cheap and low budget. the plot is confusing and incoherent. there's continuous poorly-done flashbacks in black and white that keep repeating again and again and do nothing to further the story-if anything they just confuse it more. the audio is tinny and sounds as if it was recorded with a cell phone. the songs are just horrible. the acting is a joke-even by the known 'stars' in it. it's one of those straight to DVD films that feels like it was made in one night. there's so many better indie horror films out there that can at least achieve the bare minimum requirements of what you would see on a television show. avoid at all costs.
