Pointless, plotless, completely unwatchable.
19 February 2002 | by gridoonSee all my reviews

I found this virtually unknown film grossly misplaced in the "horror" section of a video store, and curiosity, coupled with rumors of it being "gory" (not true at all), made me rent it. It was a dreadful mistake, and you should never, never make it yourselves. There is no discernible point or logic to any scene or part of this film, and the characters couldn't be more unengaging. So unwatchable that it's doubtful most viewers will be able to make it all the way to the end. (*)
