Peter convinces his mother, Monica, to perform first aid, which Martin refuses, saying that his blood is 'contagious'. When De Luca returns to bury the body and finds it missing, and suspects Peter. He sends Caleb to take care of the situation, but before they can kill Peter, Martin kills them. De Luca interrogates Peter. and sets Peter on fire. As Monica calls an ambulance, Martin recites a Latin blessing and rubs his blood on Peter. Later, at the hospital, Peter miraculously recovers and is discharged.

More Dreadful Than Dread
18 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

This Indie has Insurmountable Problems from the Get-Go. First, the Dialog Sounds Dubbed and the Ultra-Melodramatic Overacting by Everyone has to be the Fault of the Director.

Also, in almost Every Scene Characters are Told to Do Something and They just Stare, are told to do it Again, more Staring, and in a Louder Voice told to do it Again, and then They Slowly Begin to do what They are Told.

This makes for an Awkward Flow and the Movie Hiccups this way Throughout. Add to that when different Characters Use the Phrase..."You piece of Sh*t"...at least Three Times, all Hope is Lost for this to be anything but Amateur Hour.

The Dark, almost Black Color Template with Bright Red Blood Splattered about calls Attention to itself most of the Time and it Looks quite Silly. The Story attempts to be Ambiguous and Clever but Never is Mysterious or Intriguing.

The Film really Doesn't Manage to do Anything Remarkable but it's Not Awful. The Filmmakers are just Stretching Their Talent Beyond its reach. If there is Such a Thing as Trying to Hard, This is it.
