Stay Away - Not Worth Your Time
25 May 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Just rented this movie last night looking for a good scare. Based on the description for this movie - "Young perfect couple is kidnapped and tormented until secrets are revealed that will change their lives forever" I thought "sounds interesting". Looking at the cover I saw that it won an award at the Las Vegas Film Festival for independent films. I thought it might be worth having a look.


This convoluted story had so many flaws I don't know where to begin. -The women who were killed/tortured looked almost identical. Found myself going back and forth to make sure the same woman wasn't getting killed/tortured over and over. -The acting was sub-par. There was no chemistry between the leads especially when emotions were supposed to be running high. All the characters were one dimensional. -Storyline was so confusing I lost track and much less didn't care who survived. -Poor soundtrack when there was one.

One thing about a good horror/suspense movie for me is that there should be some tension being felt by the characters. This movie had no tension. The director did not try to build any and had no sense of what it takes to build a good scary scene. There was so little emotion explored on the screen it kept me unattached to the movie.

Not sure what the other movies were like during the LVFF, that this one won an award, but I will stay away from other Indie films with that award certification from now on.
