Amity Don't, 13 April 2017
Author: stevenrobertson-97899 from United Kingdom

Started off okay. Yeah you're aware it's a low budget thing by the poor acting but you can look past that through sheer curiosity. I think I watched about 30 minutes before I got bored. Literally bored. The whole high school kids excessive dialogue turned me off. Icarly meets boy and ghosts didn't do it for me. Or the cliché recovering alcoholic gets attacked first. Maybe it will for you guys but be warned. Nothing new here and testimony to why sequels shouldn't be made. Not unless they're decent and going to do something new. The acting is forced and scenes are slow. I turned it off. So can't tell you how it ends. Thought I'd leave this here as it's got an impressive 6.5 on here. For now anyway. To say it's an awakening it nearly sent me to sleep.
