Truly Terrible...and not in the way the director wants it to be...
Since so many others have already done so, I won't go into the countless flaws and problems with this movie.
Eh, maybe I will. Or at least point a few.
The leaps in logic are cavernous. The number of lame decisions and non-decisions by the 3 main characters manage to make most of the dumb ideas in horror/thriller movies you may have seen appear insignificant. Plus, only one of the 3 is even tolerable (hint..it isn't either of the guys). A water-tight ATM vestibule. One could go on and on and on and on.
The people behind this film truly show contempt for their audience by releasing this and actually attempting to get people to pay for watching it. Oh...you'll pay alright. With your time, money and the inevitable headache you will feel the next day after beating your head against a hard surface for having sat through this mess.
I've seen a lot of disappointing films but this is one of the very few that made me really, really angry for devoting a couple of hours of my time to watching it.
Oh, and to the people who are saying "Not as bad as the reviews would lead to to believe": I need to meet your dealer. Pronto.
