17 October 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

So in the first 10 minutes I got the feeling I might be watching a low budget horror porn film and got a bit excited. However I was disappointed. Soon I found myself oddly watching through the rest of this hoping it might be some horror film gem, but realized by the end I wasted a good hour of my life.

I don't know if women take baths like in the opening death scene, but wow that was a pretty erotic bath for one woman. Then comes Donna Hamblin. Why is it that she has the worst/funniest/oddest reactions to things that would make a normal human being scream or yell? Why is it that she looks so awkward driving in her car when the audience doesn't even know a single thing about her?

From the get go all we know by watching is that there is this woman (Donna) driving a car and she just has this odd awkwardness to her that made me feel as if I should not really care if she should be the target of voodoo or murder in the first place. Not unlikeable, but not worth liking in my opinion. Lets just say that if this was her in real life she'd be loosing friends on Facebook.

Next comes more silly moments where she has this non yelling sort of frozen reaction to dreams she has. (If I saw a bunch of roaches in my bed I AM JUMPING OUT OF IT.) Mix that with a bunch of random driving scenes of her hipster/emo son and a Chris angel mind freak cemetery scene you have all the settings for a bad horror film that leaves you wondering why.

Im not saying don't watch, but I will say you have been warned. 2 stars for naked bathtub girl exfoliating like a porn star!
