After punching the director on the set of his latest horror picture, special effects makeup artist, Martin Blaine, is compelled to seek anger management therapy. A visit with a hypnotist seems to help, but soon after his session, Martin receives disturbing news. His estranged mother has passed away under mysterious circumstances. Martin returns to Baronville, Pop. 3800, and before long, people begin to drop dead, brutally torn apart by what appears to be a predatory monster. The local Sheriff is convinced Martin is somehow responsible, and Martin himself comes to believe it as all of the victims are connected to him, and all of the attacks correspond with his vivid nightmares. Before long, a man who makes monsters for a living must confront his own inner demon made flesh before it destroys everyone he comes in contact with. Written by Anonymous

85 minutes of my life wasted
25 July 2013 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

After watching the first 15 minutes of this film one question spring into my mind - "is this serious"? I mean, how on earth this film was allowed to be made?

The movie was made in 2011. But the costume, makeup, CGI etc, was so bad that I was wondering if it was a misprint, which should read 1981! It was simply laughable.

I don't want to go into the story but I can tell you guys after forcing myself to finish watching this (very painfully), hoping there would be a surprise or twist or whatever. I was totally disappointed.

This movie can easily be the worst of the decade. Avoid at all cost.
