Why on earth is this rated 8.1 this is hardly a 4
25 April 2014 | by See all my reviews

This is awful at so many level. How on earth did this get 8.1 rating it is a 4 - 5.

I started watching it and right from the beginning i was getting the feeling that watching this is gonna be a big mistake and clearly looked like a B-Grade movie but continued just because it is rated as 8.1 at IMDb. This is a colossal waste of time. I would have watched any other movie.

Not scary , no suspense climax is crap.

Why on earth will someone waste money on this.

It was complete waste
