Storyline

Seven teenagers retreat to a country house for the weekend to make their epic, an impossibly ambitious Celtic fantasy. As the making of the video drifts from playful hilarity to argument, frustrated ambition and accusation, intimate details seep into the script and the gap between fact and fiction closes, foreshadowing later events. When the group decides to lift the mood with an Acid-inspired initiation, secret dreams and fears are revealed, and pent-up emotions released, with all their youthful intensity and passion. Written by L.H. Wong <as9401k56@ntuvax.ntu.ac.sg>

Don't Rent This You Won't Enjoy It
21 July 1999 | by Vertigo-27See all my reviews

Bad movie... period....

One of those kind of movies where you are acually waiting for it to take off... ending so sudden it doesnt even give you time to enjoy the 1 (and only) chill just when it gave a tiny ounce of picking up... don't rent this you wont enjoy it.

Title is unsuiting, story is off-key (about a bunch of kids going to some house in the woods and filming a cheap horror movie) which didn't work, and annoying actors...

leave this one on the self where it should stay and stay and stay.... its almost makes you mad enough to order the director to redo it and make it interesting in just maybe the slightest bit... almost.........
