The Victim is you
6 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Who wrote this? a bunch of monkeys! This is crap. The reviewers are lemmings. Everyone is afraid to offend. Michael Biehn, I want to thank you for stealing 80 minutes of my life. If you like poor acting and people driving around a mountain road then have I got the film for you.

Barely any nudity. No gore but lots of bore.

This is not a horror film.

It is a horrible film.

I do recommend this for those who suffer from insomnia.

Please stop cranking out meaningless garbage. Go back and watch Halloween.

That was low budget yet original suspenseful and fun.
