Pretty painful
14 July 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So basically this movie is a mix between the film "Are you scared" and an old MTV show called "Fear", and lets just say that mix doesn't work very well in this case.

The film is insanely slow, things really don't pick up until about an hour in, and even then its nothing special. The first hour is basically just a bunch of shots of the annoying main characters walking through dark hallways while they talk about how scared they are.

The gore is basically non existent so even the gore hounds won't find something to like in this one. Honestly this could have been a PG-13 horror film, not sure why it was given an R rating.

I do regret watching this flick because all in all it was a pretty big waste. The ending was very dumb and there wasn't really anything to take away from in this disaster. I gave it a 2 simply based on the fact that I do enjoy Reality show/Horror idea. 2/10 Skip it.
