Another one of those "the trailer was better than the movie" movies
30 April 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Everything was cliché'. Everything was predictable. The pace never changes.

The acting was mediocre and the characters weren't really believable. To be honest you get kind of irritated by the actor's roles kind of how you get irritated in horror movies when the girl just has to go back into the house when she knows the killer is inside - the characters' roles were the least realistic - it's almost as if they are all idiots and have no idea how to handle simple problems even if it were basic math.

Guys, next time, try to focus on making the movie enjoyable, and not just your trailer...
