Die, Jack, die!
3 February 2002 | by See all my reviews

After so many positive reviews for this movie, get ready for a negative one - just for a change.

I really hated this flick. It tests your patience. If the washed-out colors don't get to you, the revolting unpleasantness of it all will. The script essentially pits a psychotic freak against four creepy, murderous, insane girls (and yes, there are even more, equally dislikable characters around!). Do you care who wins? If you do, you may like this one. If you don't, you'll be just waiting for it to be over. (*1/2)
