A decent horror flick
24 June 2008 | by (Washington) – See all my reviews

I don’t know what these people are thinking. It may not be the greatest horror flick ever made, but come on, it really ain’t that bad! Not nearly as bad as tons of BAD horror flicks I’ve seen. I could name a half-dozen in the next 30 seconds that I’ve had to fast forward through, and this is NOT one of them. This one actually has a story, it’s got some laughs, it’s got hot chicks, it’s got some scares and a ‘creature’ or two. The performances are good and believable, the look of the film is good. It's not the most complicated plot line ever told on film, but it certainly kept my attention and interest. Definitely worth venturing a look IMHO.
