How did this get any kind of release
26 February 2010 | by See all my reviews

It's hard to know where to start. The first question is why I braved the afternoon to go and see this. I was hoping for a slice of gritty Northern life and got shock - It wasn't gritty, it wasn't good, it was

  • well nothing.




The story is supposed to be based around a truth - If you say so Mr. Jones! This limp effort could have been written by a five year old, shot by a chimp and edit by anyone in a Leeds cemetery.

This dull effort begins with Jenny (Rebecca Pitkin), a troubled teen from a broken home, committed to a psychiatric hospital, claiming demonic possession. Seems after she broke up with her boyfriend Rick (Pietro Herrera) he was snapped up by Jenny's main love rival Kate (Laura O'Donoughue), a witch. Kate, who likes stripping off and chanting,helps Rick place a spell on Jenny so that she'll fall in love with him again. Yes, you read that correctly: Kate has finally wrested Rick from her rival... and then goes to the bother of trying to magically reunite him with his ex-girlfriend. Why? Why? Why? Never mind, nothing else makes the slightest bit of sense.

Avoid this like the plague!
