Goofs:
Continuity: The shot through the windshield of Deputy Carr driving his patrol car, show that the windshield wipers are having a difficult time keeping up with the massive amount of rain coming down, yet the shots from inside the car as he pulls up to the girls car sitting in the ditch shows almost no rain coming down at all. In fact the road barely even looks wet.See more »

Hell is this movie on loop, 19 April 2015
Author: (rvanstelle) from United States

First time reviewer, but this was a tragedy that called itself a movie, and more than enough inspiration for me to sign in and write. Name a component of film-making and this atrocity cussed it out and b*tch- slapped it in the face.

I adore horror. Even the most avid horror fan would be shocked at the dogs I have sat through and thought were OK. Don't get me wrong; there are other movies I would rate a "1" and feel was on par with this one, but something about this particular piece of crap just insulted me. Maybe it was the acting, particularly Erin McGrone's. She made me want to punch someone in then face and cry. There's something desperately wrong when the kids' acting is far superior to the adults'. Then there was the script writing, which was probably done by two drunk orangutans.

I guess the part that pushed me over the cliff was that the concept was actually a GOOD IDEA. I wish Eli Roth had somehow been involved in the production, due to the mix of natural disaster and horror (a la Aftershock.) I hate to see ideas with potential go to sore waste. If it's this bad, it should be a standard one-aspect movie.

A waste of precious time on earth.
