I really wanted to like this...
13 February 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

...after all, I paid £20 to watch it.

Yes, I came into IMDb, searched for "Horror Movies of the Last Five Years Scoring More Than 8 / 10". This came up. Really? 8.1 / 10 from NINETY people? Unconditionally positive critical reviews? Where do I sign?

It's dreadful. Amateurish, badly acted, devoid of scares, with an obtrusive soundtrack and an utterly forgettable bad guy with a terrible case of overbearing reverb on his voice.

I have absolutely NO idea how this qualified for an award from Sundance. It looks like a third rate camcorded school project.

The positive point: well packaged and sent in black tissue paper with a single owl feather. But seriously. £17.99 plus packaging?? The only thing I can think is that this is a 'cast, crew, family and friends'-rated movie. For those of you that have seen it and were as disappointed as I was - write a review. Let's see if we can save a few people a similar let-down.
