might be the worst movie ever
10 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

This movie is so bad. They changed the name to the orphanage and it's just horrible. I felt like I was watching a junior college project filmed in a dorm. Nothing good about this movie at all. I feel like the name was changed so that people might accidentally rent it thinking it's the horror classic of the same name. I wish I could have that 97 minutes of my life back. The camera work was weird, The acting was weird, The dialogue was weird. This review might be weird but the movie was such a train wreck it made me feel weird. What were the film makers thinking? Were they high or are they retarded? I fee that they might be all three. I feel bad for the kid who starred in this rubbish.
