Psychology for dummies.
9 August 2015 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

Well,this started of pretty good but by the time you get to the psychology bit it just fails horribly.

Reminded me some of asylum blackout,but than British,and with far less excitement and not much of a plot.

There are basically no explanations given for the actions shown on screen and the psychology portrait seems to come from the seventies.

The director also wrote the story and I was somewhat amazed he ever got funding for this because its obvious he wasn't very original and just stole a bunch of stuff from better flicks.

I give this a 2 because it had potential for the first 20 minutes or so but after that it felt really flat and any depth in the characters was removed.

I was somewhat surprised by the few reviews this got but I guess this was on the shelfs for a long time or people actually got smart,red about it and decided it was not for them.

This could have worked if it was just a "psycho chasing girls" flick and without the seventies psychology this movie relies on.

If you like your movies to make sense than don't watch this film.

I truly hope somebody will make a better film using the same title because that was just about the only good thing of this flick.
