Quotes

Gigi: [while looking at herself and applying lipstick in a bathroom mirror in a club] God, I love this color on me.
Ruby: Red rum.
Gigi: What?
Ruby: That's what it's called. They say women are more likely to buy a lipstick if it's named after food or sex. Just think about it. Black honey, plum passion, peachy keen.
Gigi: [Sucking on her finger and looking at herself in the mirror] Pink pussy.

Sucked
8 March 2017 | by See all my reviews

This movie was so horrible, I hate to spend anymore time having to write a review, but i feel people should be warned. Your time is to precious to waste a minute of it on such a bad movie. It was so slow and boring. I'm not sure why it's in the horror and thriller genre. In fact, I'm not sure what category this movie belongs. It's not funny, has no drama or action, there's no mystery, or anything else that would place it in another genre. Is there a boring or weird genre? That's where it belongs. You would be better off watching paint dry.
