The land itself has magical powers, making it possible for the dead to come back and punish the guilty. -Sins can come back and kill you- Written by John Holmes Jr.

Predictable
21 March 2011 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I love to watch horror and watch a good plenty of them for work. Trust me when I say that Sacred is at best good for only 1 time viewing.

This movie is very standard. Mysterious place, nosy American youths decide to investigate. They stick their noses where they don't belong, disregard warnings, and have to pay for it. Does that sound familiar? It's almost like 'The Ruins' (2008), but I believe the latter does a better job at building tension as well as laying out the plot.

The characters are not very likable, neither do they look convincing to me as students. We don't know very much about their background, and they appear to be typical youths with a severe lack of situational awareness, and an impairment in natural acting. Since I wasn't able to stop thinking that these people are actors, immersion into the movie was also not possible as well.

I won't say much about this film since I don't care for it much, but if this is up your tree, go ahead.
