At the end it is revealed that Pfeifer is Alexis and Charlie's daughter. She is still in high school so she should be around 16-18 years old but Charlie died 20 years before so she would of have to been conceived before he died for her to be his daughter. So that would have her be 20 years old or older and not in high school. See more »

Reese Houser: Especially Pfeiffer.
Reese Houser: And if you don't bail on this show you let everyone down and they all hate you, especially Pfeiffer!
Ryan Shoos: I'm done, I'm done sugar-coating this whole thing. You suck. You're a terrible actor. And you need to do something about it. Why not do something that's not your fault. Tear this mother down. Look they're going to come in tomorrow

This awful movie will have you begging to be on the hanging end of a rope before it's over...
24 July 2015 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Do not, I repeat, Do not fall for the made up 10 star reviews...( It's obvious those affiliated with producing this garbage want to pique the interest of others so they give fake ratings & reviews, hoping others will be interested enough to see it- & they make more $$) Take it from me, Wasting my $ & time on this terrible so-called "movie" left me leaving the theater very upset I wasted $ on this trash & annoyed. All found myself wanting to do, was to drop-kick the blonde, camera-holding, guy. (.Whoever decided THAT guy has any talent in acting, needs to have their heads examined.,I can only surmise he has a family connection or paid to be in the film) The story/ acting was way too cheesy to be scary. I have nothing positive to say about this film. It was just plain junk. When I went to see it, it was opening weekend, therefore, there weren't many reviews or ratings accumulated to get a real idea of whether or not it was going to be any good. I believe this crap actually had a 6.1 rating...Now, for horror movies- I considered that to be relatively high ( even from just a couple hundred ratings) Wow, was I duped!! Now,after seeing ( most of ) the movie ( ended up walking out, it was THAT BAD) and then seeing the 10 star reviews, I KNOW the ratings on here can't be trusted...( until you see at least 5,000 - 10,000 people rated it) SO- save your $ , time & irritation -skip this boring, sad excuse & find something better...
