This movie doesn't start for me with a bad idea! I like gender bending, and, i am a fan of Genre cult films, so the idea of an horror and a catastrophic film in one, could have been fun and, despite the real bad reviews i went to see it! Oh man was I sorry! This is a low level stinker, with a script and actors who have no chances, beyond resuscitation! Eli Roth who needs to direct maybe, since as an actor he is tragically as interesting as a root canal, truly doesn't come off well of this and has disappointed so many times now, i don't truly know who would wanna watch something he's linked to, next time! And you think he actually even used to be a cool dude at the times of Cabin Fever, and, of the first Hostel! Lately he looks slightly perverse and arrogant, at least, in the movies! Why did he even want to produce this dreary idea made without any true talent or inspiration, and even got himself cast as one of the main roles? Who knows? Maybe, it will remain a mystery, so that he'll get to avoid the embarrassment! Everything here is just so trite and so plain, so cliché and laughable, downright vulgar and derivative, at the best, i finally came to the conclusion that maybe I should truly stick to some of those low budget's B or even C grade Horror flicks, that, at least, most times, are way more interesting to watch than anything like this mess, since those indie Horror's dare more, they push the limits, and, they truly get controversial! Not to mention that, if you are lucky, you may even get more of a true movie carried by some decent camera work, and, way more driven techniques and ambitions, such as, some new visual style of sort that rocks, while driving you places you have never been before, or again, that could somewhat create some real darkness, or at least, for example, could keep you at the edge of your seat or make you feel truly worried! But, this semi costly crap, all telephoned as it is, and, on top, even so fake as it feels, to the limits of ridiculous, ends to become only another annoying failure to entertain, at its very best, and, it never even gets real scary or chilling, nor sexy, and, truly, never visionary, or, at least something a little interesting to watch at any possible level.. without finding yourself thinking about the rest of the week or family trouble! Flicks like this one never surprise you, like instead a good mystery horror should! I am so down on this type of filmmaking, because it disrespects the audience (people who work to pay for this?? NO!!) and the Genre! And, please, don't cast Mr. Roth no more! He's just not that attractive nor amiable or fun to watch, never mysterious or dangerous, menacing looking, he's never believable either, you can tell he's just acting! He just comes off arrogant and weird! Which i am sure he's not in person, but, maybe, because of his lack of acting ability, that is what he clearly projects! If, instead he was to go back to watch those classic Euro Horrors from the Golden era, he says inspired him so much, then, who knows, perhaps, and, with a little effort, he could go back on shooting some new film, and, finally make something daring, provocative and thoroughly scary, and, with some tension, like his first Cabin Fever was... That's all there is sadly to say on this one! Save your money, truly!
