Bored Stiff
5 March 2020 | by ThyDavidethSee all my reviews

Some people go to some house and the house ends up being haunted by some slave owner. Scarred Stiff wasn't too bad. Unfortunately it's a "build up" horror movie where you'll have to struggle through an hour of these dumb ass people investigating s··· and entangling themselves in their own r·tarded theories all awhile questioning as to whether the pay off is transcendent. Well, it kind of is but the story has little interest value and the pacing is a 300 pound feminist waddling around. It's worth watching once, for free if you can.
