Fairly entertaining
25 February 2012 | by (england) – See all my reviews

The Task is like Halloween : Resurrection but ten times better and the film is on a low budget where as Halloween : Resurrection had $15,000,000 (estimated) budget.

I was really surprised by how good the ending was.!!

I agree with most of the reviews, this films has a good concept and good ideas, but not executed as well as they could of been, yet saying this I still enjoyed the film.

Its not the best film I've seen but its worth the watch and I suggest horror fans to watch this,put it this way its like Halloween x

Its not as corny as you would expect, this film could of been a lot better by editing certain parts of the film and editing some dialogue and removing it out of the film to make it less corny.

Overall I think it is worth the watch, some films I watch for 15 minutes and turn straight off, if this movie wasn't worth watching i would of turned it off lol..

And I give the film extra credit for been on a low budget..

Peace From The U.K
