Almost but not quite
7 July 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I tried really hard to like this movie - the premise sounds encouraging: a loner boy comes to a small town where basketball is banned following the road traffic death years before of some young people - a bit like 'Footloose' but without the funky music and some added supernatural undertones.

The dialogue's not too bad but some of the acting (Lucas Salvagno, Jason Jay Crabtree) is just shockingly bad. Then we come to Adam White's cinematography and director David Sabbbath's editing. The whole thing has the ambiance of some 1970s porno-flick.

It's saved by the easy-on-the-eye Ella Rae Peck and a hefty performance by Robert Prescott but the production values leave a lot to be desired.
