Just TERRIBLE!
27 December 2010 | by (Johannesburg, South Africa) – See all my reviews

Am I the only person who has seen this turgid mess? Or just the first person brave enough to review it? Oh well, I saw it so you don't have to. Really, you should be thanking me right now. It's the biggest load of tosh I've ever seen. Acting? Forget about it. The rather beautiful Samantha Noble, daughter of John (He of Fringe fame) tries very hard but fails miserably with what little material she's given to work with. The rest of the cast are just awful, for some obscure reason affecting American accents and failing badly. The plot, such as it is, has five (Four? Six? Who cares?) students making a movie on a deserted property. Why has it been deserted? Who deserted it? Do we know? Do we care? It seems the script-writers forgot about a reason for mindless violence...and boy is it violent!! Look, I'm not against gratuitous violence..so long as the rest of the movie makes some kind of sense, or there's some-one with a six-pack to look at but this movie has neither. It's a bad (read: TERRIBLE) rip-off of every schlock-horror you've ever seen. Don't bother. I'm beginning to think the term Ozploitation is code for Crap.
