Stay away
26 July 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Stay away from this "film." I am unable to give a thorough, comprehensive review because I could not get beyond the first 22 minutes. It was really that bad. The first 22 minutes consisted of David walking around NYC gazing off into space interspersed with scenes of a bunch of people chanting at a Satanic cult. The special effects were awful and clearly low budget. The acting was amateurish. You can't fault the actors completely, because they clearly had little to work with in the way of dialogue, lighting, or quality recording equipment. If I were them, I would keep this part of their career a secret. I would not put my worst enemies through this.
