I gave this a shot because it was supposedly filmed near where I grew up, but good Lord this stinks. The word "abortion" gets thrown around a lot these days, but here we have an effort worthy of the name. The CGI makes that in the Sharknado movies seem top-tier. It actually looks like, and may well have been filmed on an 80s camcorder. As for the acting...to call it that is beyond a stretch. It seems like the guy who made this just asked random acquaintances to play all the parts. And the only thing scary about it is the fact that people had to pay to see it, including me. I bought a digital copy on Amazon for $2.99, and even that is a rip-off. It's so bad and so cheaply made it could only be somebody's vanity project, so I almost feel bad for talking trash about what really is more of a bless-your-heart kind of situation. But as of this writing, it has over 6/10 stars here. Which can only mean that the filmmaker's friends are giving what amount to sock-puppet ratings support - either that or some people are seeing some camp value a la Tommy Wiseau's The Room. But it's nowhere near that so-bad-it's-good quality, so I had to intervene. Execrably pitiful.
