looked like a stage play with nice gore effects
20 February 2013 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Ryan, what have you done this time. You came out of nothing with Gutterballs (2008), the best one you made so far but what the hell is this. This hasn't got an actual story and the acting was below zero. The only thing that makes it watchable are the killings. Maybe for boys who love big tits they will love the girls walking in tiny shirts.

The effects used are very good and gorehounds will love that but you have to sit through a really boring flick. It's the bad acting that makes it unbelievable and even laughable. Just watch the retard, how cliché was that? Maybe the cum scene was a big joke but doesn't fit here in this flick.

It's going from good Torched (2004) to (Gutterballs) to worse (Hangar (2009))to this. The title has said it, Ryan is having a famine. God, how is it possible. Just watchable for the killings...and that's the reason I gave it a 4.

Gore 4/5 Nudity 0,5/5 Effects 4/5 Story 2/5 Comedy 0/5
