Did You Know?

While trying to cast the film while living in Jacksonville Florida, Director/screenwriter had the toughest time getting people to audition. All the so called professional acting coaches and talent agencies were telling there students and talent not to audition for something so crazy, absurd and twisted. Therefore almost all the actors that auditioned and got the parts came from states all across the country.See more »

Mimi:That's a big ass tent.

Well, it LOOKS like a good movie, 30 October 2014
Author: Harold-10 from United States

Well, it LOOKS like a good movie.... but it is not. It has well-composed shots and decent lighting, which many of low-budget films do not. Unfortunately, it fails on many levels.

The initial problem of the film is the premise that kicks the movie into gear. The reason for the characters to NOT call the police is such a poor and implausible one that you cannot get past it. From here on, the actions of the characters in such a dire situation makes even less and less sense. This isn't to say that the writing is all bad, because the dialogue is decent at times. It's just that the plot involves too many people not doing the easiest and most logical thing. By the end, you just cannot wait for the credits. I know that is normal for a horror film, but this is even more askew than should be tolerated by even the most fervent followers of the genre.

As for the acting, a couple of people in this film did a fine job. The others, however... not so much.

All that being said, I do think that Thomas L. Phillips, the director, did a fine job and as he works more and more behind the camera, I think he will continue to improve. Thomas L. Phillips, the writer, however, should have given this script to someone outside his circle to read it over and give notes and suggestions... maybe even giving a re-write or co-write, before sending it to production. That could have saved the plot from being the disjointed mess it is.
