It wasn't as good as I wanted it to be, but it wasn't as bad as it could have been.
2 March 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The reviews for this film are all over the place.

This was a low-to-no budget indie horror film. Where it doesn't show is in the effects and the score. Both of which are excellent. The audio and visual effects people get a gold star.

The concept of the film is interesting, though it never really pans out. I was left wanting to know more.

The camera-work -- really, the editing, is less than desirable. Mostly the quick cuts to and fro. As another reviewer mentioned, the effects are fantastic, but you only see a few moments before cut-cut-pan-cut.

The writing was good. The acting was acceptable. Some scenes were better than others. A few over-acting moments, and some with not enough depth and emotion. But who are we kidding? The same could be said about Kristen Stewart.

A solid 5, and a great effort from all involved.
