Dreadful
3 November 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Not even watching this on a fun Halloween night with your friends can save this film. With a half-decent premise and a only a couple good jump scares, this movie is laughable. Anywhere from the terrible acting to the failed scare tactics to, in my opinion, the dumbest decisions ever made by characters in any horror film I've ever seen, this movie fails on every level. But like I said, it's pretty funny. The runtime is 70 minutes, so it never feels drawn-out and knows exactly where to end. And for the record, the film's conclusion is so confusing and jarring that it takes a rocket scientist to make sense of it, if it makes sense at all. The film left me disappointed, cheated, and even a little angry. However, you might have a few fun conversations about the film with your friends the next day, trying to make sense of an insensible, dumb horror movie.
