Did You Know?


The decision to have the camera be instant film vs digital, was because it made sense for an aging retired scientist to build the steam punk-like Polaroid machine out of the old tech that he had lying around his apartment. But because Polaroid film is hard to obtain, the Art Department for the movie faked thousands of Polaroid pictures by shooting them on digital, color correcting them in Photoshop to look like instant film, cutting the insides out of old Polaroids they got on eBay, and then sliding the printed digital pictures into the instant film sleeves.

Positive reviews are fake!
9 January 2015 | by See all my reviews

Many positive reviews were written by people who never reviewed any movies before, only this one. Coincidence?

IMDb seems to have no way of detecting and deleting fake reviews, the reason why this movie has so many of them.

Acting is really bad (amateurish). The movie feels like it was made by students of a film school. Most scenes were shot at one and the same place, which would be fine if the actors were first class, but since they are not, and the plot is not that great either, it's very boring.

So, don't believe the many fake positive reviews. This really is a B-movie, with the exception that some B-movies can actually be good.

Edit: Just one minute after my review was posted, 6 people downvoted it! This has never happened with any of my other reviews, which proves what others have said about people here writing fake positive reviews for this amateurish "movie", the same guys who are downvoting all the negative reviews.
