Awful, random scenes, no plot, horrible, terrible
17 August 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This "movie" which consists of just random scenes, almost no dialogue and horrible acting and horrible effects is a huge waste of time. Do not bother with this piece of trash, it is unbelievable that someone could think this would be worth watching. I have no idea what the director and the actors thought they were creating when they filmed this trash. HUGE WASTE OF TIME! WARNING YOU WILL REGRET WATCHING THIS PIECE OF CR%P! Wow just when you thought you had seen the worst movie in the world, you stumble upon trash like this. I am truly upset I wasted a few moments trying to watch this when I could have spent time doing something more fun like shoveling dog doo doo out of the yard or rolling naked in broken glass.
