Boring and annoying!
24 October 2011 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

I saw the trailer on youtube and thought WOW this looks right up my alley! Sorry to say that the trailer contained ALL the best bits. Although the story is good it is let down badly by the poor acting, especially Maza who seems to be doing a Danny Dyer impression throughout the film. As the film is short (75 minutes) I thought it would get to the scary part pretty quickly but you will have to sit through 58 minutes of Scott Bates' cringe worthy script before anything nasty happens. Many youtubers compared it to Blair Witch but I wouldn't. The Blair Witch Project is a masterpiece compared with this weak effort.

It is not the least bit disturbing because the characters are such idiots you don't really care what happens to them. Its also not jumpy, scary or gory. A complete waste of time.

I really hope that countries outside of the UK are not put off by this boring film because us English are very capable of making truly awesome horror films like Eden Lake to name one!
