You Get What You Expect
20 December 2008 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Based on who funded this film (skip to the end and watch the list of logos) you get basically what you expect. It takes an interesting premise, which should be suitable for a horror mystery, and turns it into self-parody. But not intentionally, and that's the problem. The accents weren't believable to me, and seemed to come and go. There were some laugh-out-loud moments, like the various times the local nut tells our heroine to use crystals for answers or protection. That works in many films, but here it was just laughable. Anyway, not to beat a dead horse, but don't waste your time unless you look at it as a MST3K experience.
