Utter Disappointment
6 July 2013 | by See all my reviews

I wanted to like this movie, I really did. I am a huge Tome Sizemore fan and I wanted it to work. It didn't. This film really had some promise. The cast seemed good and I like horror movies. It just never came together. I have I seen it a couple of times hoping it would get better but no luck. The opening is great, has lots of opportunities, but then the movie starts to fall apart and just gets worse.

The dialogue has its moments where it works, but then becomes laughable a few seconds later. The storytelling starts to work, but then becomes cliché. It's like the movie continually tries to get going and then falls apart. It's maddening.

I did enjoy the main character and Sizemore for the few seconds he's in the film, but the rest of the acting was terrible, frankly that doesn't even describe it. At times it seemed like the actors were reading from cue cards it was so bad. The film couldn't build any suspense or gain any momentum.

The special effects were yet another disappointment; we've seen this done way too much. Flickering lights in a hotel with no power just doesn't cut it. The one long continues take is the best part of this film because it goes so quickly. I had to check the runtime because it felt so short. It should tell you something when the best thing about a movie is a camera trick.

If you're looking for something scary and you have never seen Blair Witch or Paranormal Activity, then you might find this to be watchable. Otherwise I would say you can find a much better film to watch.
