'Scared Stiff'. More like 'Bored Stiff'
4 November 2001 | by The YetiSee all my reviews

This movie is really that bad. It has no in depth suspense or plot. The characters remain lost and the acting. Huh! Don't get me started. Do not watch this movie under any cost please! There are only about 2 killings and the voodoo story is rubbish. A more than it deserved 1 out of 10. I would have given it nothing!
