Quite dreadful
31 August 2016 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This is a quirky, independent comedy masquerading as a surreal horror film. It gets the surreal part right but the rest of the staging and execution is so cheap as to make this feel like a Troma movie. It doesn't do much for a film's realism when you have actors in support who go around mugging for all their worth, actors linked to a storyline which is so slight as to be not worth bothering with in the first place. Basically, a frightened young woman discovers that her shower curtain is hiding a portal to another dimension. That's it; that's the set up, although not much is done with it.

One of the most arresting parts of the film are the weird dream visions that the protagonist experiences. These are a mish mash of similar bits in THE EVIL DEAD and THE RING, and quite weird, although not as just plain bizarre as other elements in the film. At times I felt that I really should like it, and perhaps with better resources the writer/director could have done something truly special here, but sadly the acting is just too poor and the script so sub par that I couldn't stand it. It feels like nothing more than one of those "make it up as you go along" type movies.
